Absurd. He saw a grenade, saw that everyone was stuck in the room, knew what was going to happen, and jumped on it. To say that its suicide is senseless. If he was suicidal then he'd've had many other oppurtunities to do himself in over there. If he picked it up and went to throw it and it went off, then he'd be dead and so would everyone else. He knew he was going to die, and his training would've let him know that there wasn't much else he could do to help everyone else. Maybe in TV and film the hero throws the grenade back, but if it were that simple then grenades wouldn't even be used no? They'd almost allways be thrown back.

If you read the story, he did pick up the grenade.
It would have taken the same amount of time to throw or kick it away as it would to bring in into his body.

This is a public internet conspiracy forum. If you cannot handle people presenting their view, whatever it may be, you shouldn't come here. Ed, there are plenty of your threads/posts that could be construed as "baiting", or seeking to lure liberals etc. out. You didn't honestly believe that others would not post the views you are so sickend by, did you? Wake up man. I think you knew, and it was evident in your amazement that nobody had posted anything against the marine, yet. You basically asked for it with that.

I had not expected the anti-soldier remarks to the degree that I saw them, this was not a 'bait' post. It was just to show that good people do good things and the man deserved to be recognized for it.
