this is kinda like the girl who was raped like a month ago, and is in court now, but isn't this just a reflection of our current army, where any1 can just get in since almost nobody is joining now after iraq becuase they had to lower the recruitment standards


But Marines have higher recruitment standards by far than that of the Army or the Navy ( i believe the AF is more selective) and the training that Marines Recieve is much more intencse i remeber in Boot Camp out of my platoon from start we dropped 14 individuals from my platoon of about 85 and thats an average drop rate

can i ask why it doesnt suprise you? and 95% of the Marines I know are outstanding people but there are the few in here that well this is an example


Honestly because they are the lowest of the low in the military and majority of them are dumbass pricks. Secondly I know I'm going to get shit for this because people get all pissy when I speak my opinions especially about the military, the Marines are shit. When war starts theres a reason they always send the Marines first, not because they are the most astounding soldiers, but because they are the dumbest.


have you ever talked to more than 5 marines many are not inttlegent but very few are actually stupid

But the recruitment standard is physical your talking about is physical, the one i'm talking about is mental. While thats not to say marines are stupid, it just means more stupid people are becoming marines

I know its a horrible thing but, there are a lot of people in America that joins the military because thats the last option they can do for having lack of money or education. Im not trying to sound like a jerk but it is true. earth isnt a happy go place.


I agree with you that the world is not a happy go lucky place but even if their last option is to join the military, does that give them the right to rape someone? I mean, they just scarred a 14 year old girl's life. All I'm asking you is, exactly how is raping a 14 year old girl "understandable"?

hmm maybe "understandable" isn't the word is should've used... what i meant to say was I'm not "shocked" or "surprised" that this occured

thats very mature of you to make fun of a religion. seriously, grow up or atleast have some respect for other people's beliefs.

its unfortunate for the 14 year old. the only reason this is so huge is because a "Marine" did it. but if it was just some random guy down the street, it'd be in the news for like a day and then the media would run into a more interesting news.

Just curious, why are the marines even in Okinawa?

As for the girl, I can't even provide an accurate description of how horrible that is.

As for the namesake of the marines: It's also tragic. Many people automatically lump people together and the actions of few reflect on many. It's a shame, but at least us here on this thread will know the difference.


The US maintains a strong military force there as Japan has been limited since WW2 and it was part of the deal. Basically we protect them.


Yeah I knew that I just didn't realize that it was the marines specifically. I was always under the impression that the marines went to where the real stuff happens and I just cant' see anything massive occurring in Okinawa. *shrug*

o and btw marines are not trash of the military. They might be the dumbest but put out the most effort out of everybody. Marines unfairly get stuck with the crappy jobs

marines are required to go out in groups of four anyways in okinawa, so this was probably isolated incident.

how the fuck were u in the marines if you're only 19...unless thats another lie also?

and its not that the military sucks, more like its not for everyone. i've seen a couple of people come back just cause they missed it or just couldnt make it in the real world.

well actually if you want to know the liberty policy here

E3 and below (Private through Lance Corporal) are required to have a "Liberty Buddy" when going off base and when they arrive on island they recieve a red card whihc means that they can not be off base after midnight. after a duration of time (diffrent for each command) they recieve a gold card but are still requited to have a liberty buddy. once a Marine Picks up e4 (coroporal) they can leave base by themsleces

the Marine in theis case was an E6 (SSgt)


You based there? cuz i was stationed at pendleton
