The editor of the opinion columns writes, "I think the real test to this will be how our Corps recovers and presses on with its mission to kill our enemies and protect our beloved freedom and our great country." Take a step back and reflect for a second. "Our corps" and "kill our enemies"? Whatever happened to sovereignty? Since when did Indian nations become enemies of Afghanistan and when did the marines become the military of say the Lakota Nation? And when we talk about "our great country" do you mean the Navajo Nation or the Cherokee Nation? Finally, when we talk about "protect our beloved freedom", do we really believe that tribal people living in caves in Afghanistan threaten the freedom of the most powerful nation on the planet or are we swallowing the propaganda of those who wish to wage wars for the benefit of the capitalists?
