The Good, The Bad, And The Sell-Out
The Marine Corps isn't immune

The Good
"Do we somehow enhance the war fighting capabilities of the United States Marine Corps by allowing homosexuals to openly serve?" - Current Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James Conway.


The Bad-Ass
“I believe homosexual acts between two individuals are immoral and that we should not condone immoral acts.” - Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Peter Pace.


The Sell-Out
“I think times have changed. I think I was very much taken by the Admiral Mullen's view that young men and women who wish to serve their country should not have to lie in order to do that.” - Former Commandant of the Marine Corps, General James Jones (Current National Security Advisor to The DingleBarry.)FWIW, he was raised in France.

Look at their faces. Jones would never win a war ... I remember Battle Cry by Leon Uris, where the two Marine lieutenants are polar opposites, Bryce the candy ass powder puff derby type and the other guy whose huevos stop the bullets from hitting his grunts. That is the look on the faces of both Pace and Conway. I would drag my knees on every pushup for Jones but I'd do 'em right until ordered to stop for the other two.

By the look on his face, it is hard to tell whether General Jones does or does not own a Turbo Encabulator.

I wonder if he is after one last star or one more medal on his uniform. I have always had respect for the Corps-ever since I read a biography of Chesty Puller and all those great books by W.E.B. Griffith. Where are we going when the Marine Corps gives in to what is expedient and loses sight of what it has stood for throughout its glorious and storied history?

Jones looks a little like he might be living a lie himself.

Sorry, it should have said, W.E.B. Griffin. Great author--knows the way to tell a good story over a lengthy series of books.

What is the penance for making fun of Gen. Jones?
