You didn't bother to read the article did you, Masked One. If you had you might have noticed the second paragraph.

But, it didn't stop you from denigrating those who fight for liberty, did it.




Yes, I did. But I did not trust the article.

I believe all that I denigrated was the tobacco industry, and its hold on people who fight for "liberty" and people who argue about fighting for "liberty" in endless bouts of rhetoric.

We're forty-nine percent there. Uncle Joe really knew how to ruin a nation didn't he?


Yup. Notice how it was like some doomsday device? Even after the Soviet Empire was destroyed, the poison that was injected into the American culture is still slowly destroying us.
Tag us, bag us, we're through fo' money.

In my day, Marlboro was the unofficial cigarette of the US Marines, with Kool being the favorite of the Black Marines. It would be interesting to know if that is still true.


What about the marines that didnt smoke? What did they do with the extra cigs in the MREs and Sundries? What was the percentage of Marines that actually smoked? And what was the average number of marines who prefered weed over tobacco?

In those days, we ate C-Rations, not MREs. LRP rations were brand new at that time and were hard to come by. I don't remember exactly what Marines who didn't smoke did with their cigarettes, but I would assume they gave them to Marines who did. If you didn't smoke you didn't take cigarettes from the Sundries Pack. Most Marines smoked cigarettes, but I never did any research on the exact figures. Substance abuse was not a problem in my units.

Edsinger you are as clueless as all the war happy people in this threads, so keep living in the clouds with them, reality will hit you one of this days and I bet you and your war happy friends will not even face ATS anymore.

Edsinger you sound like an old record.


Marg, it is you that will understand at some point the war that we are fighting. You will wake from your dream utopia and finally address the stakes and you will be glad that this phase of the war happened.

That's a very impressive rendering of the Marlboro Man. She should send him a copy of it. All the information you need to contact him is in the article.

One, he's a Marine. Two, if you had read the article, you would know that he wasn't interested in "poster boyhood." Even if he was, I doubt he has time to preen his celebrity.

Damn! Tennis anyone?

Grady, I must say this is a good thread. Like tennis, back and forth, back and forth.

After reading through this whole thread, I keep focusing on the same thing.

I think during wartime, all soldiers in combat areas should receive free cigarettes. Really, I think our respective countries could that for them.


I'm pretty sure if I was in combat, the last thing I would want to worry about would be running out of smokes. It's a little moment of peace in a world of insanity.

To answer your question 'why'? Because we don't live an a Mother Russia type state controlled environment, state which I'm sure you hold no fondness for.

Secondly, it appears that any attack on the causes, the reasons behind this was are an attack on those troops who are at present risking their lives for their countries.

Not at all, the majority of arguments I have seen place much concern upon the well being of those very people and an unjustified loss of life for the perosnal gratification of some combined with the financial benefit of others. Such a post might appear to suggest that it's author were of a mind that it is an impossibility to disagree with a war yet still wish the safe return of troops.

Perhaps they lack compassion to understand such a viewpoint.

Nah, hell if the guys in Iraq read some of the crap from some members on ATS they would be pissed off and despondent and demoralized, if they don't agree with the war and are serving anyway i stll respect them i owe my freedoms and liberty to guys like them, none of us can claim to be half the heroes that they are considering the incredibly difficult conditions they are operating in
