    Not sure what you mean. The article seems to describe a small town overwhelmed by a flood of young men from a different culture.


    Could be anything from the locals being assholes to the soldiers being vicious thugs. Can't tell from the article or the responses.

    The Military are US Ambassadors, first and foremost- the comments expressed their experience with their service and how they were disciplined in local dust-ups-

    It discussed how things were done in the past.


    It could be that the Italian press has been whipping up a hate for America, because of their hate of the President.


    Really not a lot of information in the article.

    You've never served overseas at a U.S. Military base have you?

    Nope. Does that change the fact that there was not much information in the article?

    There wasn't for sure- but when does that stop it from being featured, or forming an opinion?
    Given our proclivity to superiority I'd have to say, with booze involved, some soldiers tried to prove just how bad they were- and apparently the Base Commander thought some disciplining was necessary-

    How so? You don't think American servicemen being banned from a city means anything?
