Outrage of the day

Stan Goff


June 14, 2006

A Marine corporal has apologized — after he was busted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations — for making a video of his musical performance, before his company of Marines, who are cheering wildly when the lyrics refer to killing Iraqi children… especially the lyrics "I grabbed her little sister and put her in front of me. As the bullets began to fly, the blood sprayed from between her eyes, and then I laughed maniacally. . .I blew those little fuckers to eternity . . .They should have known they were fucking with the Marines."

Of course, the Marine Corps made an official statement that they did not condone this kind of language and behavior, which is a great big goddamn lie. They don’t condone publicity about it. They followed orders like good Germans when they massacred Fallujah; the term "hadji" is as universally used as "gook" was in Vietnam; and when you see and hear the video, it is apparent that everyone is showing loud, vocal approval of it. That means it is a cultural NORM, y’all. Bad apples, my dyin’ ass!

The video is named "Hadji Girl," using the preferred dehumanizing epithet for Iraqis by GI’s who have been indoctrinated in military masculinity. You can hear the troops off camera, and this is where you have to put yourself in theplace of any troops who might have questioned what was going on… immersed in the collective dynamic of gender and war, each whoop and whistle and cheer affirming your membership in the death-cult… and any outward show of concern potentially subjecting you the knd of peer pressure than can only come from 150 heavily armed 20-year-olds who are earning their public esteem at the direct cost of other people’s lives.

Many sites are pulling this video down, coming under pressure from the "decency" squads… the same ones who discover decency only when graphic images of war threaten to undermine and expose their craven worship of the death cult that is ANY imperial military.

I’m sorry, but an apology obliged by this guy’s chain of command — who accept that it was "just a joke" — is not reason enough to cut him or the Marines or the US war against Iraq any slack. Find this video anywhere and everywhere you can, re-save it, and continue to re-broadcast it. They wouldn’t want it down if people seeing this, in the midst of the Haditha massacre investigation, weren’t dangerous to their imperial goals.

Re-boradcasing this will bring a quicker end to the mass murder that is the war.

BTW, Hillary Clinton was publicly jeered at today by fellow Democrats who have run out of patience with the presidential aspirant’s purely imperial po
