Kill the Children

Während US-General über den Verlauf des Irakkriegs weiterhin seine Lügen verbreitet "Opfer sind ausschliesslich feindliche Kämpfer" berichtet ein Rekrut der US-Marines über seine Ausbildung.

"Every response was "kill", every chant we had, whether it was in line for the chow hall or PT was somehow involved with killing. (...) Constantly using the term "kill" as though it meant nothing was used to desensitize the recruits to the notion of killing and it's implications."

Aus einem der regelmäßig gesungenen Lieder:

"1, 2, 3, attack the chow hall (repeat) Kill the women, Kill the Children, Kill, Kill, Kill 'em All".

Auszug eines Briefes eines Marine-Rekruten an Chris White (Verfasser des Counterpunch-Artikels)

Mr. White,

On Sept. 9th I left for MCRD San Diego with hopes of becoming a United States Marine. [Soon enough] things just seemed to continue in a negative path. I was of course shocked by the continuous use of the word "fuck" from the drill instructors all the while large banners hung on the walls speaking of the "character" and "integrity" of the Marines.

The drill instructors made it clear that the enemy was not simply Iraq, or Osama Bin Laden, but more and more it was taking an anti-Islam tone. It was now "us" and "them". Anyone who wanted to attend the Islamic service on Sunday was either looked at strange or ridiculed. I attended an Islamic service on several occasions out of curiosity and the feeling among the other recruits there was much the same. One recruit, of Palestinian dissent, said that a drill instructor remarked how he'd like to kill "your people". Hearing this and hearing one of my own drill instructors describe how he'd killed a "rag-head" in the gulf war really started my absolute revulsion of this institution I'd signed up for.

Every response was "kill", every chant we had, whether it was in line for the chow hall or PT was somehow involved with killing. And not simply killing the enemy, we had one just standing in line for chow which was "1, 2, 3, attack the chow hall (repeat) Kill the women, Kill the Children, Kill, Kill, Kill 'em All". Constantly using the term "kill" as though it meant nothing was used to desensitize the recruits to the notion of killing and it's implications. On top of that, we watched some awful propaganda film which started out as a 9/11 memorial with music (proud to be an American), and pictures of the World Trade Center, then quickly switching to Afghanistan and combat footage whilst Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" blasted through the speakers. This happened much to the delight of my fellow recruits and was encouraged by the drill instructors.
