By now we've all seen the video of a U.S. Marine throwing a puppy off a cliff. Or at least heard about it. Or maybe just accidentally pictured it one time on an acid trip. Whatever the case may be, it has sparked a general consensus of outrage towards the Marine. In fact, it seems to be one of the most unifying issues on the web right now: that guy is a jerk.
I thought as a counterpoint, it would be poignant to point out a few facts.
1.) You may have noticed there are only 2 or 3 people in the video. That is because the puppy killed the rest of the platoon.
2.) Prior to being picked up by the scruff of the neck, the puppy was muttering anti-Semitic remarks.
3.) The puppy was an insurgent.
4.) The puppy was a Jihad Terrier. A rare Middle Eastern breed, bred to hate baseball and big tits.
Given these facts, I think we should all pause and consider how we should feel towards the Marine in question. Soulless Jerk or American Hero? You decide.
