It's Fun to Shoot People

Your U.S. tax dollars at work:

Marine General Counseled for Comments
'It's Fun to Shoot Some People,' Said Veteran of Iraq,
Afghanistan
By JOHN J. LUMPKIN, AP
WASHINGTON (Feb. 4) - A decorated Marine Corps
general said, "It's fun to shoot some people'' and poked fun at
the manhood of Afghans as he described the
wars U.S. troops are fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
His boss, the commandant of the Marine Corps, said Thursday
that the comments reflected "the unfortunate and harsh
realities of war'' but that the general has been asked to watch
his words in public. Lt. Gen. James Mattis, a career infantry
officer who is now in charge of developing better ways to train
and equip Marines, made the comments Tuesday
while speaking to a forum in San Diego. According to an audio
recording, he said, "Actually, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know,
it's a hell of a hoot. ... It's fun to shoot some people. I'll
be right up front with you, I like brawling.'' He added, "You go into
Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for
five years because they didn't wear a veil. You know, guys like
that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of
fun to shoot them.''

Yeah, it's lots of fun. Shooting. Human. Beings.

sigh.

  2. You don't get it. Read my blog and maybe you will get the point. This is a war fought by tough guys who don't believe that those whom they are fighting are in the least honorable or qualify as human. I tend to agree with the military on this point. The Marine who made the comment wasn't talking about the average Afghan or anyone for that matter who is peaceloving and normal in our terms. Hewas talking about some of the worst scum on the face of the Earth. People who would rape and kill you personally without compunction or regret in a blink of an eye. So to answer your sarcasm, YES, our tax dollars are well spent in this area. Go Devil Dogs! Remind the enemies of freedom that hell is coming to their pancake breakfast if the Islamofacists don't change their ways. Go ahead, make our day, scumbags. Shooting terrorists IS fun and insures your safety.
