    Aw, come on. Its just a bunch of Marines having fun while away from home. The Navy needs to lighten up a little bit, plus I think its freaking hilarious .

    As far as the sensitivity training, I think it should include how to make your index finger so sensitive you feel the trigger break better.

    How can I say this...? Well, yes: Sensitivity Training requires a lot of Chapstick....

    Peace just requires the other guy being conditioned to wet himself, roll on his back and sob uncontrollably at the sound of your boots. Worked for 10,000 years. Only the advent of Social Liberalism, during the latter years of the Roman Empire, has brought forth useless alternatives.

    Sensitivity training???????? I thought we were fighting a war!! How the can you be sensitive and fight a war? Geez, we gotta get the media out of the war zone and finish cleaning house (should take about 3 days).

    Since when are you sending Marines to make friends?

    I guess the military is changing. Now the military is more in the public eye and actually more respected by the civilian than when I was in. That must be partially why they 86'd these shirts. When I was in, just outside the main gate, homes had signs in their yards "Dogs and Sailors Keep Off the Grass".

    I wonder if they had any sensivity training for the DA's prior to them flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, or a corn field.

    I can't believe it.

    We want our military to worry about not hurting the feelings of the people we have assigned them to kill?

    No wonder I was so glad to get out.
