Military Training

Good use of tax payer dollars…

  1. Know this is most probably not the case and rather is how I choose to look at this today. Let’s assume these soldiers are simply letting out a bit of stress through humor. I can’t imagine being stationed somewhere like Iraq and experiencing the horrific reality of seeing someone’s leg being blown off right in front of me, a friend dying in front of you at the hands of war, or an innocent child in the local village who loses their parents by a sniper or symbolic suicide bomber. So, if this platoon takes a few minutes to laugh and act stupid, it is the lesser of all evils.

  2. Geeesh, party pooper. I guess if thats the case then your right and I would have to resend my previous comments…

    Your response was an eye opener and a reminder that all perspectives must be explored/entertained before a point is made – intended or not, thank you for that.

  3. In defense of the soldiers, I recognize the movements they are doing as “the bend and reach” a very popular exercise when disciplining soldiers. Especially in the IDT(Initial Duty Phase) or Basic Training phase. It is a very difficult exercise to do for a long period of time and to be singing a song/ that song while they are doing the bend and reach is definetly an indicator of them getting “smoked.” My guess….some one was caught complaining about a task or duty they were performing and it cost everyone. Trust me those soldiers are getting fit in that vide.Only in basic training. smh

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data, ability to repeat discredited memes, and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Also, be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor even implied. Any irrelevancies you can mention will also be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous :)
