Should the Marine Corps Punish Corporal Belile?

NO.

Can the Marine Corps punish Corporal Belile?

Yes.

Jim Hanson at Blackfive seems to think that marines and soldiers have the same rights as civilians.

They don't... and he should know better.

Hanson also seems to think that marines and soldiers have "off time", i.e. a time when they are not subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice?

They don't... and, again, Hanson should know better.

To suggest otherwise is to misinform his readers and the readers of those blogs who have excerpted his letter to the Marine Corps spokesman.

Having said that, I think the Marine Corps brass need to CAIR less.

WELL.

I didn't even get to read your post in full before I ran over there, read what was said, and fired off a comment.

You and I are, once again, on the same page. His ass is the Marine Corps', 'round the clock until he gets released from that contract.

Too many people have an opinion on too many things that they know entirely too little about. Sheeyut.

Amen, Jett! Sometimes it's like all the barbers and shithouse lawyers have decided to take it to the net.
