    Interesting view. Some of it's lost in translation through the subtitles, but it's interesting to see how the Russians view us.

    Haha. I enjoy hearing what other countries think of us. The rumor that we kill our first born and eat the children of those we conquer has got to be the funniest.

    Marines don't do that now??? ... Geesh, you young Jarheads are getting soft :p

    I found the video to be funny. The recent battle of Hawaii will always be remembered.

    Also, I always get a kick out of the way the bootcamp scenes from FMJ are used. Lee Ermey really did a great job with that role. Kubrik was trying to bash the Marine Corps, and Ermey turned the tables on him!

    Yeah, I was wondering about that Hawaii campaign as well. Wonder if that's revealed in the Wikileaks files?
