Doug_Remley BS: Marine Message from the Front Lines (235* d) RE: BS: Marine Message from the Front Lines 31 Mar 03


Shoot, TAB was not a paragraph but submitted an unfinished message with a misspelling.

Greg, you certainly seem versed in the "crimes" of the USMC, though you forgot the atrocious execution/ambush of August Sandino in the 30's. It seems true that since the time of "honor" and "face" wars have increasingly become economically driven. Corporately driven to protect flow of profit-driven resources, if you will. And, the good people who should rule are the same that want nothing to do with the political process, nor can afford it. And yet, you call to task the young people ordered to serve, seeking to serve to improve their lot in life, without tasking the regimes that have taken millions upon millions of lives in this century. Have you seen the mass graves required for hundreds of thousands of unidenitified children? They are larger than soccer fields. THAT was the German siege of Leningrad.

And what did Lepus say, "Pretend I am a soldier" to examine two choices? That is as patently unreal as a man saying, "Pretend I am pregnant." Being a soldier in the throes of close combat are as surreal as a women feeling change, growth within and the fulfillment of birth.

Answers are not that easy.
