I think it is by it's nature political. I asked what the motivation was to give our Dear Leader an opportunity to say that he was not making some sort of statement on the war. If I posted a story about ESPN employees who kicked puppies, wouldn't you assume I was going after ESPN employees? BTW, I still want to know what Michelle Wie was up to last year. Isn't she 18 now?

Well I know you go after ESPN employees anyway, so I wouldn't need to assume

Well look, I'm not going to speak for Matty and he and I don't agree on much when it comes to politics but I think it's safe to say that regardless of his, or anyone's opinion, of the war and our decision to go there/stay there he doesn't have anything against the troops that have been sent there to fight. We all know that they are all putting their lives on the line everyday but, just like anywhere else in life, some of them are total a-holes regardless of the uniform.

But I mean it's not like Matty said "Look at this, typical of soldiers in Iraq."

Anyway, I'm off to bed. I'm sure Matty will explain himself in the morning...or just laugh at the assumption.

Re: Marines Investigate Puppy-Throwing Video

This is news, simple as that. If you think this incident/information shouldn't be reported/discussed then I ask you why not?

Re: Marines Investigate Puppy-Throwing Video

I think somebody is looking too far into this. It wouldn't matter to me if it was a plumber tossing a puppy. The bottom line is it's a disgusting act, if it's true.

And since it continues to be a pretty big news item, I thought it was worth posting.

If it makes anyone feel any better, I am against the war, but in this case I'm more outraged over the treatment of an innocent animal than I am in trying to make some sort of statement.

Re: Marines Investigate Puppy-Throwing Video

I find these far more disgusting than a faked puppy-tossing video:

6-week-old baby beaten, burned, drugged

YouTube Gets Slammed for Video Showing British Mom's Gang Rape

Perspective is a beautiful thing.

Of course... that goes without saying.

It still doesn't make the puppy video not worthy of discussing though.

Re: Marines Investigate Puppy-Throwing Video

I don't see how this is a political issue. One Marine throwing a puppy is not statistically significant to extrapolate that to all of them, and as Matty said he is just disgusted by it.


But back to the topic, I think it was fake. The dog wasn't moving and the yelping sounded fake as well. If this was just a dog, who cares? People make videos of stupid shit all the time.

If it was a dog that was already dead, then I guess that is still kinda wack but would that constitute for animal abuse charges? Obviously it does for human corpses but I am unfamilar with what the law is in regards to animal corpse.

I'm not sure I agree with the "if it's just a dog, who cares?" statement. Did I misunderstand you there?
