    Recruitment of felons up in U.S. Army and Marine Corps
    By Lizette Alvarez

    Strained by the demands of a long war, the U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corps recruited significantly more felons into their ranks in 2007 than in 2006, including people convicted of armed robbery, arson and burglary, according to data released by a House committee.

    The number of waivers granted to Army recruits with criminal backgrounds has grown about 65 percent in the last three years, increasing to 8,129 in 2006 from 4,918 in 2003, Department of Defense records show.

    Not really. It's one thing to say, "that's wrong". It something entirely different to judge those Marines as people.

    Is it okay to pee on corpses --- sure.
    Its ok?
    Ok then i guess you wont mind if the taliban pee on people.. Hell i guess its ok if i go to a funeral and if i have to pee instead of going to the bathroom ill pee on the dead person...

    If I'm with a company and some guy decides to take a deuce on top of a dead enemy, I'm not sayin' boo for a variety of reasons.
    Yea im sure that will help out our cause real well..


    Sure.


    What's not okay about it?
    1.)Respecting the dead
    2.)How it represents the USA
    3.)How the terrorists are going to use this as a propaganda piece to recruit more members


    You thought? So now Marines have to live up to what you think?
    No they dont i was just expressing my opinion and what my family members who were in the armed forces portrayed to myself

    That's not their job to live up to what you think they should or should not do.
    NEver said it was

    Their job is to do what they're told, to kill when told, to help when told and to do it in exceptional fashion. I'm sure this Marine when he pissed, did it very well.
    Sweet


    It means you cannot empathize nor understand what did or did not prompt this Marine to do what he did. As you cannot and do not understand his state of mind, your view on the matter is one of a product of misunderstanding.
    Sense i dont think we should be peeing on people it means that i'm "misunderstood"?

    I'm not saying you have to agree or condone his actions - but you have no way of understanding his frame of mind. You might just want to weigh that into your abject criticism and outrage.
    I have...
    I know plenty of service members and im sure they didnt pee on people...

    You think they're worried about the GC, or what might happen to them for pissing on someone that is already dead. No, they're not. They're worried about one thing and that's completing their primary mission: to make it back home, mentally and physically intact.

    I think that's what most people are doing - judging them as people.

    I've never pissed on a dead body, on a battlefield, either--had to specify there...LOL--but I've escaped situations with my life before, too and can understand how one feels, which is why I say: this is no big deal.

    Those that are doing so are doing it from an uninformed position. That's why those people are wrong.

    Pissing on a corpse tells me all I need to know about a man.

    Have you tried applying this sort of thinking to people on welfare, by any chance?

    Getting one's panties in a twist over a soldier on a battlefield, possibly after multiple deployments, who is mentally and physically drainsed and ahppier than hell just to be alive, pissing on a dead enemy, whose head he just exploded with an FMJ round, speaks volumes.

    Like I say, it's not that big of a deal to waste someone, but OMG! Don't piss on'em!
