meh, I transfer in this case.
I =! the army.
Marines = t3h cocky and t3h loud mouthed.
Having lots of friends and family in both the marines and army (we have no swabies or arm-chair commandos)- more importantly having grown up in the army- I have experienced a lot of the culture that the two branches cultivate and encourage and I've found the marine culture grates the nerves; they're good, but they don't seem to think you'll remember it unless they bring it up every 5 fucking minutes. Also, the marines manage to recruit a lot of crazies... crazies I grew up with and honestly would not trust with a gun, but- hey, training can change people, right?
Totoro: I think what we need in this day and age of instant media coverage and the ever present objective of winning "hearts and minds" are soldiers who can kick ass and simultaneously NOT give the liberal, peacenik, commie, protesting, pansy assed, hippy, fairies in the world the sort of ammunition they need for their "down with America" tripe. We certainly don't need generals giving those people the things they want to hear.

So either they need to get someone to be a good mouthpiece or they need to pay a little respect to the fact that in this day and age PR is a part of every soldier's job description as the press is certainly trying its damndest to catch anything like this.
Not saying he shouldn't enjoy his work, just that for the sake of the public opinion and our image over seas he should be more careful; the last thing we need is al-quaeda recruiter to play this audio clip and say "see, they LIKE killing you and your family".
