    ‘Lord of the Flies’ at U.S. embassy in Kabul?

    ?Lord of the Flies? at U.S. embassy in Kabul? - Afghanistan- msnbc.com

    Lurid conditions described in e-mail
    One e-mail from a guard describes lurid conditions at Camp Sullivan, the guards' quarters a few miles from the embassy. The message described scenes of abuse including guards and supervisors urinating on people and "threats and intimidation from those leaders participating in this activity."


    is this some sort of mob mentality? what drives people to do these kinds of things?

    I think it is just some guys blowing-off steam. They weren't U.S. soldiers, and I have not seen all of the pictures, but from what appeared in the video it seemed rather uneventful. Of course no one wants these types of extremes to be occuring in a country we are attempting to aid, but it is nothing more than guys being jackasses and partying to pass sometime. Not too serious, just overabundance of testosterone. This is commom behavior in FRAT houses.

    I'm guessing you don't have a little boy, right? Where do you think the term "pissing contest" originated?

    Speaking of stupid stuff that guys (mostly) do in the military to kill time, have you ever seen Skippy's List?

    skippyslist.com/

    My bro tells the MOST HILARIOUS stories about being a nuke on a sub for 10 years, and the stupid stuff they used to do to amuse themselves. They called it "big boys club."

    This reminds me that I'm really kind of glad that no one ever got video footage of the stupid **** we used to do when I worked at a police agency. God...it totally would have looked like Lord of the Flies.
