Marines don't do dittly-squat. The Army takes the grunt, and my uncle is in the Army and served in Iraq for 2 years.

I cannot believe some said this, the Army is a bunch of pansies. More die because there are a gazillion of them, We Marines are built like NO other force here in the US except for the elite forces, just to compare basic training alone is far more complex than any other. Another thing, it is funny how ppl talk about these things just siting at home playing Playstation, when I came back from the sand lot, I changed I HATE ppl talking like they've been there!

ummm, my uncle is in the Army and he has told me alllllllll about it. Ya, you may be trained better, but I don't think the marines are on the ground fighting the damn insurgents that are killing everyone as much as the army. People join the marines so they have a BETTER chance of not seeing ground combat.

Are you out of your fucking mind!!! holy shit I do not believe it.

Thunder Run? the 975 man force that siezed baghdad? Half Marine, half Army.

Who cleaned house in Fallujah? Army?? no fucking way. Marine 1st batallion.

People join the marines so they have a BETTER chance of not seeing ground combat.

Holy fucking ignorant shit. :lol: The number one reason people join the Marines is because they want to be in the infantry and stack bodies, period. That is why the Marine Corps exists. No other conventional force on the planet does it better. That's the reason why they're "first in".

You seem to equate who takes more casualties with who does more fighting. The reason why the Army takes more casualties is because they ride around in fucking humvees all day and get shot up and IED'd.

"The Marine Corps is called the few and the proud because not everybody can be a Marine, and that's why we have the Army."

i have no room to talk becuase im in the air force but to say that people join the marines so they don't see combat is just plain stupid. If you dont want to see combat you join the navy :ph34r:

Well sorry you're ignorant man. Ok, I'm a Us Marine, who happened to go to war not your uncle giving GI-Joe stories, I respect him for what he is but listen kiddo I'm 2nd Batallion ok I WAS farking there, is bad enough your ignorant a$$ can get stuff right and I forgive you for that, but at least have the decency of showing respect, I think if you EVER say to any Us Marine in his face that the only reason for joining was to have a "better chance of not seeing ground combat, you WILL need surgery "try it" very very idiotic for you to say that. Army ppl get "time out" card during training ;) , 20 out of 20 ppl will be in-out of Army training and stay for a while, mebe 10 ouf of 20 Marines will actually make it out and stay for some time... Do yourself a favor and LEARN! I'd do it for America time and time again, but ppl like you make me sad!

Oh, and BTW everyone after MCT (Marine Combat Training) gets a 'get your stuff ready 'cos your going to Iraq the second you report to duty, mean while I was hearing this soldier the other day, saying to me how lucky he was to join the Army 'cos they're doing stuff and doing BBQ's for CO's, and not the Devils "us" 'cos they get to actually do some stuff 'yeah we actually enjoy "getting some" with my Saw blazing insurgents :)

Again L E A R N and stay in School ;)

Fine, you guyz can go and fight in your Fing cool little marines, play with your swords, kill innocent people, and look heroic, while the whole damn population is mourning you hoping you don't come back in a bodybag. You know how many people JUST think about your safety, and what is the president doing? NOTHING. He even requires you to pay for you own damn armor. So don't look at me as the ignorant one, I just don't want any of you fighting or dying. I don't give a rats @$$ about the middle east, I care about innocent soldiers who volunteer to ship themselves over to a warzone so they can get the sh!t beat out of them by some crazy and duranged terrorist group. I don't want someone being freaked out of there mind EACH AND EVERY DAY about whether they will see their children again. I am thinking about the families and YOUR lives, and I do not mean to downplay any of you who are fighting for our "freedom." I think the marines and army are a joke, and I have a right to think that way no matter what someone says. Why is the enrollement down, CAUSE NO ONE WANTS TO FIGHT. You even have to recruite people in the ghettos, that is going low cause they don't have anything to begin with. I won't say anything more about the army or marines, just if you go over, please come home in one piece, that is all I want.

Many liberals have had violence socialized right out of their being. They are indoctrinated to avoid conflicts rather than win them. When confronted with the reality of evil or war they coil in horror believing that anything that results in death or destruction must be wrong. If they do come to grips with the problem, to have realized that sometimes war is unavoidable, these cowards will advocate some uncommitted, wishy-washy solutions like “it’s a law enforcement problem“ or "we need smart sanctions” or “we will threaten them with air strikes“ or "let's send in the special forces."

They have been given plenty of time to surmise their own strategy to help end this conflict but this is the best they were able to come up with because of their true nature is to cut and run. It was John Kerry who said, he voted for the war before he voted against it. It was Hillary Clinton who said, if she knew then what she knows now she would have voted against it. According to Nancy Pelosi, our presence in Iraq created the terrorists and when we leave they will put down their suicide belts and IEDs.

Liberals' criticism of the war is often implied in terms such as "poor planning" and "not enough troops." These people don't know the first thing about military strategy and tactics, they have no knowledge of military history, nor could they tell an F-16 from an M-16. Yet, uniformly they state that the plan for the reconstruction of Iraq is flawed. They assume that if our troops are fighting hand-to-hand combat…something…they might not know exactly what… but something…must have gone horribly wrong. Therefore, Bush’s plan must be flawed!!! They really don't understand that chaos is a big part of war.

These liberal pacifist morons have cast the soldier as a "victim"…instinctively…to find the oppressed group… and to champion it…like so many of their causes. This false attempt of protection comes against their perennial accusation of being unpatriotic or having an anti-military sentiment, since they can claim "we support the troops; we want to bring them home so that they don't have to die for nothing!"

Our enemy is as nasty as they come, they have killed thousands of innocent people around the world by the most savage of means, but still many do not wish to do away with them. Part of this is because the average American chooses not to feel threatened by this Islamic fanaticism to rid themselves of the mental burden even as the extreme threatening verbalizations and actions of this enemy escalate.

Liberals are irresponsible. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Fine, why don't you sign up to defend the country tuff guy? Or are you to pussie to stand up for your government? And anyone has been in a war knows that it is hell on earth, and no war is worth fighting unless we have reason to fight. Yes, WWII was worth fighting because we knew our enemies. Do we know our enemys starfish? NO, it is a group of reigious extremists that we cannot tell from regular people walking the streets of Baghdad. So we blindly send in troops so that the Fing president can look like a hero to his daddy. I will bet a million dollars you can't point out a terrorist, but then again you may be so ignorant and point to any arab on the street. If Saddam attacked us directly, then yes, we should have fought Iraq and kicked him out. But no, we did it on faulty intelligence. And you know what else, since the seige of Iraq, countless Whitehouse intelligence people came out and said that they told the admnistration that there were no WMD. Cheney and Bush dismissed what they didn't want to hear. Bush needs to take teh stick out of his @$$ and realize that there is no plan for success. I knwow that the democrats will come up with a stratagey BEFORE any of the conservatives. We have created the biggest mess in history, and not even our President knows where to end it. Starfish is a mental disorder.

Mike,

You're right about that, it just really grinded my gears when you said that 'Marines just sign up just to NOT to go to war. Hey ANY, US citizen that has the balls to fight for this country has my respect and that's my point of view.
