More Proof The Terrorists Have Won

This is apparently the new viral video that's gone, uh, viral over the last couple of days. Yep. Real troops. Stationed in Afghanistan.
You know, we haven't heard from one-time frequent commenter Jarhead in a while. Coincidence?

Does this kinda violate the don't ask don't tell policy?

that is funny. Most of war is sitting around being bored with brief moments of terror.
When I was in Iraq some guys in my unit and I had plans to emulate a MTV show Pimp my ride. We were going to make Pimp my 7-ton. We were going to make spinners made of plywood and such. We didn't get to for various reasons but that would have been great.

That's great! Nothing wrong with having fun and getting a break from potential death! Remember, they're over there for you!

No need for a "Don't ask, Don't tell" policy here...

Looks like the sensitivity training got a little out of hand.

Out tax dollars at work!

If these men are denied the opportunity to express themselves, then the terrorists win!

Maybe the most perfect example of the freedoms we enjoy. I couldn't watch but the first few seconds because it was just plain stupid - In my opinion. But, those guys are literally fighting over there for their right to post that video up.

Well, I'm sure their CO wasn't as impressed as we are, but I fully support their right to post stupid videos up on the internet.

If Gay guys wanna be in the Army and get both their heads blowed off then let'em.

They need to have a little fun. I'm sure it helps take away the stress of fighting a war.

God Bless our Troops!

I'm glad that they can still be goofy-assed kids. Some of the guys I know who've come back have all lost their joy and happiness. Make fun of them all you want, but that video made me laugh and showed me that the terrorists haven't won; our boys (because many of them are boys) are still humans who love to laugh, dance, and have fun with each other. They look like total goofballs and I think it's wonderful! I may not necessarily agree with all decisions made by our government, but I whole-heartedly support every soldier representing the United States of America and risking his or her life. God bless each and every one of them. Thanks for posting this video.

I always support the troops I just question their constitutional education that leads to volunteering serve so far away for such an illusional purpose. Before you post your vetriolacal rebutals I've got my DD214 where's yours you left and right non educated mindless drones.

Bud, I have my DD214. Was yours from WWI? Your senility is apparent. These kids remember 9-11, unlike you.

I could only watch a little because it was slightly painful to look at and I was laughing so hard I couldn't see. Good for them-at least they're finding a way to have fun in the icky place.

Blah, blah DD214 yada, yada, Hoooah, Oorah, yakkity yak, No s%$t
there I was- surounded! Blah blah blah, Airborne Death From Above...

You people sicken me, where you during Fallujah 2?

I was right there deep in the suck the first 24 hours were the hardest- pizza was cold, CNN kept cutting to stupid commercials and my dumb wife was pestering me for sex since she was on her 'peak' and the stupid fertility drugs.

And that's how it was for me. I'm a changed man I know, but somehow I hope better for the experience.
