Where is my Marine Corps, and what have you done with it? 

I'll start off this post by saying that I am NOT an official source or mouthpiece for the Marines. That being said: where is my Corps, and what have you done with it?

This week, a Corporal from 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing got in hot water over a song that he wrote after a whiney, terrorist-tied group known as CAIR (the Council on American-Islamic Relations) bitched about it being put up on YouTube.

Why are we as a Corps bending over for these people? It's a song about a Marine getting lured into an ambush, overcoming the enemy, and kicking his ass. So it throws around the word "hadji" which has often been used in a derogatory fashion to describe insurgents. So what? I know it's too much to ask for the media to belittle the enemy and maybe call him a few names, but now the American fighting man is supposed to not utter harsh words about him too? WTF? I can kill him, but I can't talk shit about him? Is that the policy now!? Good thing I never talked any smack about Zarqawi... I could've been frikin' fired, apparently...

When I was at Al Asad last year, this video was circulating. So much so, that by December, you couldn't make it across base without hearing it coming from some computer or mp3 player. It was recorded at an open-mic night at the MWR (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation Center) on base, probably in late October or early November last year (just a guess on my part) and became wildly popular, in no small part due to the fact that it's chorus comes from "Team America: World Police," a movie that damn near every Marine I know loves.

The fact that the media is trying to directly link this to Haditha comes as no surprise. The end of nearly every news story about "Hadji Girl" ends with a sentence on Haditha... how nice.

But now, the Marine Corps is literally scouring the UCMJ to try to find something to fry this kid on. Unreal.

Maybe if we focused on real threats to good order and discipline, told terrorist fundraising organizations to pound sand, and put it little hate in our hearts towards those who are trying to kill us, we'd get somewhere. Not so long ago, this USED TO BE company policy...
