  1. It's not a "private christian army" stop being stupid. This is just a political move to appease certain people and nothing more, and it will change nothing. The contractors working for blackwater right now will simply go work for DynCorp, Security Intl, etc. which do the exact same thing.
  2. penguino is absolutely right, you guys are just too blinded by Obama's persona to be able to see it. My platoon nabbed 4 taliban operatives (one of whom was from chechnya), turned them over to our HET guys, and they're at GITMO right now. There are no innocent men there and GITMO is no different than any other international military prison, it's just the news media decided to put it all over the news so people think it's a big deal and it's not. If it closes then every prisoner there will just be transferred to another prison and nothing will change except a bunch of blind liberals feeling good about themselves when the reality is there are hundreds of GITMO's all over the world that are no different and these prisoners will now be living in far worse conditions than they were before because the news media will no longer be watching them 24/7 like they were at GITMO. You got one detention facility closed out of hundreds - good job you really made a difference in the lives of terrorists. Fact of the matter is places like GITMO exist, need to exist, and will always exist. Closing GITMO is no different than banning guns, allowing gays in the military, etc. They're just feel good laws when in reality accomplish absolutely nothing.
  3. Most of you guys don't understand the culture of the US military, and most people in the military don't understand the culture of those in direct combat roles. If you make that known that you're gay among your peers then you can expect to be living a miserable life. So we can't directly haze the sh*t out of you because you're a homo, so you'll just end up standing duty every weekend, being put on every sh*t detail and billet out there, and if you're a grunt and on deployment you'll be stuck on camp guard and never leave the wire with your boys. Someone has to stand duty on christmas day... These are just a couple of the tons of examples out there where your life will get f***ed with. You will get f***ed with so badly and you will contemplate suicide. Most boot junior Marines/soldiers in the infantry have an absolutely miserable life and get hazed and f***ed with constantly until they've proven themselves in combat, that's how it is in the grunts. We have the toughest job in the military and if you show even the smallest sign of weakness you will be f***ed with so bad that you will at one point or another contemplate suicide, and that's just for your average boot. It doesn't matter what Obama or the law says, just because you're allowed to join doesn't mean that you will be tolerated, and in an infantry unit you definitely won't be. This is what reality is in a typical infantry unit, we are a men's only organization and at the end of the day our sole purpose in life is the kill enemies of the United States. Whether you like it or not, the US military has a good ole boys culture and if you make it known that you're gay you can pretty much kiss the rest of your career goodbye. Are there gays in the military right now? Yes. Are they still in the closet? Yes. Not because they're afraid of getting kicked out, but because they're not stupid. If you want to allow gays to join the military, that's fine, but keep them out of combat related roles. Women do not exist in the infantry not because of them being physically inferior (most female Marines are more physically capable than a lot of men I know), but because it will destroy the tight knit unit cohesion essential for mission completion and a gay man in an infantry platoon will do just the same.
  4. you guys do know that Military Times poll only polled its subscribers right? That's why I didn't give it much credence. Short of an entire mandatory DoD-wide poll among the entire military, the polls from Military Times are the next best thing and you won't get any better accuracy. You cannot go to any military base in the world whether it's in Iraq, Afghanistan, USA, etc. without seeing the Military Times, it's the most widely read publication among the military and is very respectable. They're polling thousands upon thousands of military personnel from junior privates to four star generals across the entire spectrum of the military. You will not get a more accurate poll than this.
  5. I'm not attracted to them, but I would like to try getting serviced by a girl that has one. I used to date a chick who had one, it's really not a big deal.
  6. I have no problem with them going after Al-Qaeda wherever they are. I think it should be a small scale operation though, special forces and the like. Shouldn't need to be massive amounts of troops. Dude, that's not the case at all. There is no hope in Afghanistan, and running small scale SF missions to target a select few high profile leaders will accomplish nothing. We killed a countless number of upper level Taliban leaders and senior officers, and the second they're killed there's always someone else who immediately takes their place. More than 75% of the country has been completely untouched by coalition forces for over 7 years now and you've got cities that are taliban strongholds with 5,000+ taliban. The army is over there simply as a defensive/occupying force and the other 33 nations over there as part of ISAF NEVER leave the wire, only ones who are proactive in hunting the enemy on a massive scale are the Marines, and right now there's only one battalion over there. We killed 1,200 taliban and liberated the entire Helmand Province... the British relieved and took over for us and the taliban came back and started wiping out the brits left and right and the brits retreated back into a single FOB. You need to get the politicians and news cameras out of the country and let the military win this war. Unless you put at least two battalions of Marines in each province, there is zero hope for any sort of legitimate military or political victory in Afghanistan.
  7. *runs to the nearest marine enlistment office* This job definitely has it's benefits that's for sure.

  10. 23 days left until I am back on American soil.
  11. I know this makes no difference for anything, but out of curiosity, what is your rank at the present time? I'm a Lance Corporal. My unit is going to Al Anbar province in Iraq next year, but rumor is we're coming back to Afghanistan. When we get back i'm putting in a package for Embassy Duty, where i'll spend three years at three different American embassies around the world. It's extremely competitive to get accepted into Embassy Duty, you're competing against the top 1% of of the Marine Corps. If I get accepted, that's what i'll be doing and if I don't then i'll deploy again with my unit next summer. The State Department recruits Marines directly out of the Embassy Duty program to be Regional Security Officers and things of that nature, so if I get accepted i'll most likely work for the State Department when I get out after my 3 year tour.
  12. I'll be home soon, not allowed to say exactly when because it's OPSEC but let's just say i'll be at the Bills@Dolphins game on October 26th.
