I AM a Marine, I never shot ANYONE, yet I was called a "baby killer" ( and this was in 1979, not in the 60's ) Those marines are reacting to a
tense filled situation, a Laugh or Cry type thing, have none of you ever been on a football team or any type of team? do none of you have friends that
you Bond with???
Of course they are laughing and carrying on, that is the way of a warrior, My enemy died and I live, I celebrate life
the cars that pulled up had no reason to be there ( would YOU drive towards gunfire? ) if it was your family getting shot at you might, which means
you would BE a threat to the shooter.
Does this except upset me? not in the least, they did a great Job and none of their squad got hurt, that is YOU tax dollars well spent, should they be
in Iraq, that is another topic altogether.
Shame on you for thinking that Just because they are Marines they are "bad" I do NOT support the Governments position on this War in Iraq, But I
will be dammed if I will sit back and allow any to Demean a fellow Marine with arm chair quaterbacking.
As I said, I never shot ANYONE, that does NOT mean I never sent anyone out that got shot or that died for this country.
Before you DARE bash the Defenders of your Country try and Give thanks there ARE people out there WILLING to be shot at, the Next enemies round could
be coming at you or your family
