Obnoxious Droppings

A Former Sgt in the US Marines, US Army and Australian Federal Police - With an Attitude Problem - Looking at the Shits & Giggles of life from a Quasi-Conservative Point of View * * * WARNING! STRONG LANGUAGE FOLLOWS! * * *

Berkeley, CCP

So - the city of Berkeley in what was formerly known as California has made it official - they want the Marine Recruiters to pack up their tent and sneak silently into the night. The irony of this is absolutely astounding.

Firstly, it was William Jefferson Clinton who came up with the idea of "don't ask, don't tell" but he's a hero there.

Secondly, examine the sheer numbers of Marines vs Army troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. It's no contest, as the Marine Corps strength consists of a total of under 200,00. That includes all the support troops - truck drivers, cooks, clerks, etc.

Thirdly, lets have a look at the Air Force and the Navy Air Wing. Even using GPS-guided bombs and missles, the JDAMs and JSOWs have an "acceptable" accuracy of a ten meter radius. Go out in your yard, put a stick in the center, measure out 33 feet and draw a circle. Any bomb that lands in that is considered "highly accurate". Not quite the precision we'd been led to believe, is it?

Additionally, many of these bombs are cluster bombs, which release multiple warheads that explode about 20 - 30 feet above ground.

I've been searching online, but so far haven't been able to find what the blast radius is for and of the solid or thermobaric bombs. When you have a bomb of up to 2,000 pounds land at the extreme edge of the 33 feet, then add in the blast radius; double it for the diameter of the circle of destruction, the Air Force is responsible for more "collateral damage" than the Marine Corps could ever be. The Marines - for the most part - see their enemy up close and personal which reduces collateral damage to almost zero.

Why isn't Berkeley busting down on the other branches of service? Personal opinion is that the Marines have the reputation as the best fighting force in the world (although the Royal Marines and SAS might take umbrage at that!).

I saw where a bill has been placed before Congress to remove all Federal funding from Berkeley - including the University - but with a Democrat-controlled Washington and this being an election year I can't see anything happening.

Since it appears that Berkeley wants to secede from the Union, we should help them out by fencing it off from the outside world so they can continue with their inbreeding.
