American boys

полит разг
"американские парни" ("наши парни")
Ссылка оратора на солдат, защищающих интересы Америки на полях сражений (часто апеллирующая к чувствам их семей). Часто звучит в призывах "вернуть наших парней домой к Рождеству" ["getting the boys home by Christmas"]. В 1964 Л. Джонсон [Johnson, Lyndon Baines (LBJ)] заявил по поводу эскалации конфликта во Вьетнаме [Vietnam War]: "Они просят нас отправить американских ребят для выполнения работы, которую должны бы делать азиатские ребята" ["They call upon us to supply American boys to do the job that Asian boys should do."]. В последние годы фраза звучит не совсем политкорректно [politically correct], так как не учитывает роли женщин. Более современный вариант: "мужчины и женщины наших вооруженных сил" ["men and women of our armed forces"]
