    They are worried about the effect this might have our our decade long investment in Afghanistan, and our future credibility around the world as a force for "good."

    Why put it all on Clinton, unless it is to turn this issue into one of political hackery? 2 members of a band I used to play for were almost killed by the VA, and that was during the Bush administration. However, I also blame Clinton, and I also blame Obama. ALL of our presidents after Reagan have had little or no regard for our troops, or for our vets. Democrats? Republicans? They are both to blame.

    I think your diversion has run its course. It's clear you have nothing. So, moving on.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

I would think that anyone who has served this country with honor, especially in dangerous and stressful situations like these Marines have, would be insulted if we cut these Marines too much slack because we "understand" what they did.
    Insulted? No. Scratching their heads wondering, "Are you serious?", yes.

    To me, that says that we don't expect better of our servicemen than this, which is almost as insulting to our military personnel as the filth that comes out of the war protesters' mouths.

    All of the veterans I know in real life are disgusted by this. The only people I've met who don't have a problem with it have been civilians and people on the internet whose claims of military service I can only take at face value.
    The only thing that is expected of our servicemen is to do their job and destroy the enemy. Afterall, that's their job.

    Am certain these young marines would all agree that was a dumbass act to videotape.

    Many may disagree with me but I think you are given more leniency to such acts on an enemy killed on your own land than when you are a guest in someone else's land.
    They didn't? I was told, very specifically, that public exposure was against the rules. It would mean that you're, "out of uniform". Recall that regulation?

    I mean, let's face it; these guys didn't commit a friggin crime.

    This rates a level 10 ass chewing and nothing more.

    That is not true. That is a filthy and disgusting lie and everyone who has served knows it-- including yourself, if I remember correctly that you are a veteran.

    False. We expect much much more than that.

    Their job is also to not dishonor the military or their country, among other things.

    You sure?

    If someone went out an peed on a U.S. soldier's grave in Arlington, what would you think of that? Just curious.

    It's very true. I've posted the infantry's mission in this thread and it explains about killing the enemy, not doing PR.

    War is ungly and armies aren't public relations tools.
