    thats the point...a dumb killing machine...great at killing but for why?
    Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech.

    When it comes to combat, I bet they will follow orders blindly and are willing to drop on the sword. That's all that matters for the Corps.

    It's not their fault for being caught doing stupid things... I think it is their superiors to be blamed for all this.

    However, keep in mind that I am a civie, so I might be completely wrong.

    There are many idiots who have SS insignia and swastika painted on their moterbikes. They think it is cool.
    Maybe, this is what makes them sort of ingnorant.

    Cheers!...on the rocks!!

    i see your point but you must see mine too. i started to think that these types caused incidents like in Guantanamo or Afghanistan

    these types can ruin millions of dollars spent for PR with one single photo or action.

    btw i dont think that Corps spends all that money&time to get cannon fodders

    Oh, I totally see your point, however, in any organization, be it military or civilian, there are dumb folks. There is no vaccine for stupidity, yet.

    I would be more worried about LEO and Lawyers. They make bigger impact in human lives.

    They certainly not cannon fodder and the vast majority of Marines are hard working Professionals and I wouldn't mind having a couple of them behind me in any fight...make that in front of me.

    If you read carefully post #74, you will notice both of his knees hurt him. Few days ago in another thread he told the Col only one of his knees is bad.

    GG is silent, and frankly haven't read much from Ben since that comment
