I Couldn't Have Said It Any Better Than This Jarhead Did

Here's a Marine recruiter, a captain, writing in the Berkeley Daily Planet to the members of Code Pink who protested in front of his office.

While the protest that you staged in front of my office on Wednesday, Sept. 26th, was an exercise of your constitutional rights, the messages that you left behind were insulting, untrue, and ultimately misdirected. Additionally, from the comments quoted in the Berkeley Daily Planet article, it is clear that you have no idea what it is that I do here. Given that I was unaware of your planned protest, I was unable to contest your claims in person, so I will therefore address them here.

And he does address their claims, shredding them with precision, with logic, with eloquence, and with pride. Do yourself a favor and go read the whole thing.

His comment about Darfur is priceless!

Great article. I only hope there's somebody at Code Pink who isn't totally immune to logic who can hear what Captain Lund is saying.
