Iraq update

CAMP PENDLETON -- In a clear, strong voice, a Marine sniper accused of manslaughter and assault in the killing of two Syrians and the wounding of two others told a hearing officer Wednesday that he wanted to return to Iraq for a fifth deployment.
It's that time of the day! Any minute now, Glen or Chris will comment with that Bill Hicks quote. You know the one. Any minute now.


  1. "Anyone dumb enough to want to be in the military should be allowed in. End of fucking story. That should be the only requirement. I don't care how many push ups you can do, put on a helmet, go wait in that foxhole, we'll tell ya when we need you to kill somebody..... Excuse me, aren't y'all fucking hired killers? Shut up! You are thugs! And when we need you to go blow the fuck out of a little nation of little brown people, we'll let you know." Bill Hicks from the track "Gays in the Military" off Rant in E-Minor. There's more on the track though.
