The main thing that caught me about this was the dialog. What I heard was:
"Does this mean we get to blow up a house any time we find stuff?"
"That doggy is so fuckin dead, dude."
Maybe I misheard, but what a waste of explosives, and a dog, and a house, considering that Iraqi refugees, and even American troops, are sleeping in the dirt.
You have the dumbest opinion on every subject. Obviously the worst part was the solider using Rob Schneider's "You can doo eet" line from The Waterboy.

At first I was absolutely horrified by vids such as this, and the infamous clip of a marine casually tossing a puppy off a rocky hill... until I talked with my boss, who was in the service. Marines are broken down and rebuilt to destroy. They're killin' machines, and they do it well.
That doesn't make this any easier to stomach, but it put it in perspective regardless of my political views. Thank you for the submission, baleen.
"Those fuckers need to be stop-lossed forever so they can't re-enter normal society."
wow fuck you.
Yeah, that was pretty brutal. When guys get out of the military, especially during a war, it's pretty hard to adjust. I'm sure they appreciate the understanding.
He's a very fair and understanding man...in the sense that he realizes all too well that working at a retail store isn't the end of the world. He's a good fella, and knows how to get things done. That said, some of the stories I've heard are downright terrifying.
It's really hard to understand when all they wanna talk about is putting bullets through peoples necks but uhhhhhhhhhhhh yeah nice exploding house video dude
I dunno, one of my best friends is a Marine scout sniper right now, and the thing I noticed was that he seems to have not changed a bit. Still the goofy fun guy he always was. At least on the outside. I haven't pressed him about what he's been though, though he's been in two humvees that have been blown up and states that killing people really isn't cool.
no such thing as an ex marine

Question: does this shit go on in the British/Australian/Euro militaries? You never hear about their troops pulling shit like this.
I really can't say one way or the other. But having a Masters in statistics I think i can say this safely.
The US has MANY MANY times more troops over there than any of the Euro militaries. With that in mind, these asses make up a very small percentage of our military. Therefor it is safe to assume that the Euro militaries' presence, given their small size, would have many times fewer incidents.
garcet, did you really need to get a masters in statistics to make that comment? really now. it's not like you're a bouncer or something.

What's your deal, Baleen? You're, like, the one smart person I've ever seen post anything on the internet. Are you a cylon? Or a spy?
SPY'S SAPPIN' MY COMMENTS
I am a cylon.

The military, for the last couple decades or so, has been the option for kids who aren't going to college, but are ambitious enough to want to get out of whatever shithole they live in. It's basically a giant frat house for 18-25 year olds who are cooped up together and only let out when heavily armed.
The main difference between then and now is that everyone has camera phones now so the entire internet gets to see what kind of retarded shit they get up to. The other difference is that in pretty much every other war ever, there was some place all these guys could go to get drunk and get laid. Which one is the bigger influence on what you see here is left as an exercise for the reader.

They bring their own alcohol - there was more brand name booze and pork than ever before in Saudi after the Americans came to play.
My brother told me they actually controlled the camera phones and internet messages pretty tightly when he was doing riverboat stuff in Basra. They screened every form of correspondence, so I can only assume that these kinds of approved clips are part of a campaign to generate interest in the war, or that these marines have figured out some way to subvert the military censors.
I'm guessing you can only lock down the phones and cameras and stuff so tightly. If you snap some pics with your camera phone, you can send it to your friends before your XO even knows what you've done.
I'd imagine if you bought a local phone in the market, you could probably do whatever you want with it as long as you didn't get caught.

I'm pretty sure he said "That donkey is so fucking dead, dude." Not that it makes it any better that they had no regard for it.
