    Bullshit. When first enlisted they were all about killing Vietnamese. They're called "ditties," we sing them while running or marching. It takes the mind of what you're putting your body through.

    And it is EXACTLY how Marines act, they could give a crap less about the opinions of a bunch of left-wing, politically correct nimrods who are offended by being so much as described by their hair and skin color.

    Perhaps you overly-judgemental civilian-type liberals should stop and consider just exactly what you ask Marines, or any other servicemember to do. It all boils down to being a government subsidized mercenary, and there is NO point to putting lipstick on THAT pig.

    It wasn't satire. It was disgusting. And if you don't see the difference between the rap and the song -- which describes one of our guys seeking shelter with the girl and then blowing away her family -- then there's not a lot to say.

    I also don't think your lyrics are complete because it leaves out the part about him blowing away her father....

    Oh the PC military will roll over. They're absolutely paranoid of bad publicity and will squash just about anything that causes it. In the Marines, when they really started integrating women into units, we were suddenly no longer allowed to sing any of the womanizing/whoring or otherwise portrayed women in anything but a perfectly equal in every aspect songs.

    No one takes them seriously -- well, except apparently some lefties -- they are nothing more than amusement.

    Oh, and political correctness sucks, and I HATED seeing it invade the minds of my fellow Marines.

    I haven't asked for, nor do I need your help. You need to work on that blindness though. It IS satire.

    Now, do we need to compare who was "there" and probably knows better than some lib reading a blog, or what?

    Y'all take yourselves WAY too seriously.

    Ummmm...if you note, I'm not the one reading blogs. But thanks.

    Good way for our guys to win hearts and minds.

    But keep asking why they want us to get out of their country.

    No offense, Mr. P, but their behavior was inappropriate. It made the good guys look horrible. Is this really the face that you think our guys should be showing?
