I’m going to the dark side of the moon for a few days and therefore want to leave you all with some craziness that’s been festering in my brain for the last few weeks (catharsis you see… if I get it out the insanity leaves me and infects others). I saw a news post about 4 marines who were court marshaled for urinating on Afghan bodies. Here’s the point I want you to ponder: bullet IN them OK, urine ON them NOT OK.
It is apparently OK to KILL these Afghan men, but the global community draws the line on peeing on them. Shoot them in the face with an M-16 … no problem here’s a paycheck. Piss on their carcass … PROBLEM now you go to jail. Seriously, am I the only one that takes issue with this particular set of priorities. To be honest I suspect the now deceased men, if given a choice, would choose the golden shower over the slug to the face every time and twice during Ramadan irrespective of how devout Muslim they were(to all you politically correct nut jobs out there that got to my blog by mistake – don’t get pissed … it’s a twice on Sunday reference, stay calm and keep it together just breath slowly and you’ll be OK). Listen, I’m not saying peeing on people is the way to go. I myself have a strict don’t pee on me policy AT ALL TIMES. That said war sucks and we’re sending people out to KILL one another for shits sake; why don’t we focus on stopping the killing part and leave the not peeing on each other bit for once the shooting has stopped. When we focus on the peeing while the bullets are still flying it makes me think we’re missing the point (although we apparently didn’t miss the Afghans because their dead).
Oh well, see you all in a few days (hopefully). Keep the madness to a minimum until I get back, I don’t want to miss much. Cheers
