Come out and Play: A Marine and a Cab Driver in Iraq - WARNING MARINE LANGUAGE
The Strategy Page ^ | 4/22/08

Posted on 04/22/2008 6:07:20 AM PDT by llevrok

(video at link)

A US Marine at a roadway checkpoint, bored to tears, talking to a Baghdad-bound Iraqi taxi driver. You have to understand Marine humor in combat, a little on the sick side, but very funny. This lad's sarcasm and cynicism is profound and hilarious. This might be why the Commandant of the Marine Corps tried to have the Marines pulled from Iraq and sent to Afghanistan, because the lance corporals were complaining that they had no one to shoot at. Of course, Secretary Gates turned him down, so now the Marines are passing the word via cab drivers for the insurgents to come out and play.

“Wear your seatbelt, don’t run with scissors, drink milk.”

Good advice. :-)

Wow, that was a morning maker, that was! There wasn’t much language...I hear that every day from people who’ve never set foot in a requiting office. Besides, there ARE a $hitload of them in Baghdad. The poor cabdriver’s reaction was priceless, though...and the “wear your seatbelt, have a nice day” part was a great touch!

Wish I could photoshop. I’d do a nice shot of a tough looking Marine with his DMR and a

“GOT INSURGENTS?”

Ha! One of my favorite movies. I bought the DVD for my son a couple of years ago.
I liked the gang in the baseball uniforms with the bats.

Now that is funny. He’s on a timetable. “We’ll be here for another hour....don’t care which direction they come from.....but after that, well, we’ve got to shower, eat chow, etc.”....

Lol.
