This is what I was addressing:  WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Marines are highlighting a kinder, gentler side in a new ad campaign.

Is this confusing to you?

To me this implied that our Marines needed to be more touchy-feely overseas.  I'm wasn't buying it.  I want our guys to use the best tactics that get the job done, and ensure them coming home.

You're not able to understand what I said up to this point?  Was this anti-Marine?

My response was geared to address the issues that I want them coming home alive, enjoying their family, and vise versa.

You can't understand this?  Really?  That isn't an easy concept for you to grasp?

Since the topic was framed for how our Marines treated people, I made it clear who I am most concerned with them treating properly with no malicious intent whatsoever.

The meaning of this eludes you?  It doesn't explain what my intent was, and that it wasn't intended to be a slam at all?

I obviously care that the Marines do in total, but my biggest care is how they treat their families when they come home alive. Outside of basic human rights, that’s where my concerns end when they’re in the field of combat.

If there wasn’t trouble they wouldn’t be there. Stop causing trouble, and forget about them showing up. Forget about them doing something you don’t like.

These two paragraphs are the content of the post you first objected to.  You didn't recognize something you focused on to disagree with me?

I used italics and blue to highlight the portion you disagreed with most.  You couldn't understand that either?  The gray completes the post.  You couldn't grasp that?

If you wish to read something negative into that, be my guest.

Is this too tough a concept for you to grasp?  Seriously.

It wasn't what I intended, and even not worded as good as it could have been, you're trying way to hard to find disagreement where there is none.

You couldn't understand this either?  I doesn't expres to you that you may have been trying to hard to find an insult where none was intended?

I have never taken a negative stand when it comes to our troops.

This was confusing to you?

Trying to lecture me on the media slant concerning our Marines is a waste of time.

What part of this was over your head?

If you can't grasp the meaning of my post, I think it says far more about you than it does me.

I’m just waiting for the amen corner to ratify that (crickets)
