ACLU Statement on U.S. Marine Corps Photo-Sharing Scandal

ACLU

WASHINGTON - The Senate Armed Services Committee is investigating the revelation that possibly hundreds of active-duty male Marines have used social media to share explicit photographs of female colleagues and have posted derogatory and threatening comments about them. As many as 30,000 Marines, including veterans and inactive service members, belonged to the Facebook group Marines United, which is the focus of the current inquiry.

Smedley Butler was correct when he gave his "War is a Racket" speeches about what the Marines did, who they did it for, and what their actions made them: murderous gangsters. The other branches of the US military are no different in that regard.

I have no sympathy for the women and men (legally young children immune from prosecution) that team up to destroy countries and cause millions of deaths.

Between the rapes and the lesser harrassment, perhaps some of these misguided females might learn something.
