I'll bet the next time that thief goes stumbling out of a store with stolen merchandise he looks where he's going.

Whether by "land, Sea, Air, Curb-!!

Great Marines---Last year one of my sons was at a base in Afghanistan and the Taliban launched an attack--BAM !

Total failure and my son emails me and says "There are 25,000 armed MARINES at this base and those idiots attack us--WHAT WERE THEY THINKING"???

Awesome story but I don't think it's true. Looked it up EVERYWHERE and nowhere does it mention the last part of this article
