FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

INSURGENTS FAKING DEAD FIRES ON MARINES

FALLUJAH, Iraq – Marines from the 1st Marine Division shot and killed an insurgent, who while faking dead, opened fire on the Marines that were conducting a security and clearing patrol through the streets here at approximately 3:45 p.m. on 21 November.

And now, for instant reaction and commentary, we go to our resident Armchair Soldier:
They killed him?

Color me outraged (the “brick red” will do fine). Why, if it had been me or Kevin Sites, we would’ve just shot the gun out of the man’s hand instead of wasting him so, you can put money on that. And then knocked off his hat, just to scare him a bit. I mean, really, Clint Eastwood did stuff like that all the time, and he’s just an actor for heavens sakes, so surely our soldiers can put up a better showing, hmm?
