A Liberal Marines Progressive Perspective

Marines are defenders of the republic and the Constitution. That is our oath, that is our purpose, that is our calling. Many are Democrats. This is the journal of one such Marine. This leatherneck's progressive perspective is as follows...

U.S. Marine,0300 MOS,eight years in,honorably discharged,college-educated. To all the damned trolls, you better believe there are liberal Marines. Read "War Is A Racket" by 2-time Medal of Honor recipient Maj.Gen.S.D.Butler, plus Lewis B. Puller, Jr.'s "Fortunate Son" and maybe then you'll understand. Semper Fi!

The Draft: It Won't Be Sexy Posted by Hello
As a preface, the picture above demonstrates just a fraction of what a draft means in real terms. And let's be honest, when the draft comes (and it will come, just do the math...5 wars, only three platoons, huh, we need more people by gosh!), the D.O.D. is going to be looking for young folks to imitate exactly what the Marines are doing in the picture above. Sure, D.O.D. is going to round up a few "support elements", i.e., medical personnel, computer science people, intel bubbas, etc. But, they're REALLY going to be looking for young people (and the definition of young people are people between the ages of 18-35, although more than likely they'll start with people between 20-35) to serve in the infantry as grunts, ground-pounders, 0311's, 11B("11 Bravos") or whatever you want to call them. You see, as the photo above illustrates, the draft is going to equal young people getting muddy, grimy, wet, uncomfortable and (of course) being placed in extremely dangerous circumstances. Do you see the muddy deck, and the dank puddles? Do you understand the look on the spotters face as he is being utilized as a weapon stabilizer? Do you understand that the Marines above are cold and uncomfortable, while at the same time sweat is trickling down their back even though they already sopping wet with perspiration anyhow? This is a message to all the good folks that gave a "that a-boy", a kindly slap on the back and a great big big thumbs-up to the current Republican adminstration and their misguided foreign policy by voting them (and their foreign policy quagmire) back into office. This is also directed to all of those young adults out there that decided not to vote and to all the parents of young adults that voted for Bush in those screwed up red states (you can usually spot them driving around in their obnoxiously large SUV's that are covered with little yellow ribbon magnets and American flags) all I have to say is this:as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, as a Marine and as a proud American, I don't want to hear any bitching or complaining when the draft comes down and scoops your youngin' off to fight (and possibly, as a consequence, be gravely injured or worse) in any number of the jacked-up wars that are now on the Bush horizon. And be advised, when a draft comes, you don't have the luxury of choosing a branch to serve in (as you do in peacetime), it is chosen for you. In other words, since these are essentially scheme and maneuver OOTW's (Operations Other Than War), land assault conflicts now and to come (i.e., Iraq, North Korea, Syria, etc.) and not surface warfare or air war evolutions...please be prepared to raise your right hand as you are pressed into service and repeat after me"...welcome to the US Army and the US Marines boys and girls". Again, see above photo...that's what "the draft" means in plain english. Semper Fidelis

I do not get you brother.I'm a former "Flyboy" and my brother is a Marine vet still serving as a civilian.I can see the fact that there's an opposition to the right,but YOU seem to have an opposition to American Supremacy because you think that WE are inherently evil,just as so much of the dem.party obviously believes right now.You know,there WAS opposition to FDR during WWII from the republicans but they did NOT act with such destructive disregard for their fellow citizens/Peacekeepers.Of course in a more just/patriotic time such as that,people acting as you and the left would've been shamed into submission if not taken up on charges.I would only ask that you reassess your core convictions.No,the majority is NOT always right,but YOU are screaming against the winds of Freedom.
