Wingnuts believe stereotype about Marines' intelligence

Group Plans to Send Letters to Troops in Iraq on How U.S. Government Planned 9/11

U.S. troops serving in Iraq may be getting more letters during mail call, but they won't be care packages — one group is sending them letters and DVDs claiming 9/11 was an “inside job” and that they should rethink why they’re fighting.

Mark Dice, founder of The Resistance, which he calls a media watchdog group, says that the U.S. government was responsible for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and that the armed forces should know it.

“People want the facts. The Marines are hungry for the truth — what got them there [in Iraq], why are they risking their lives — and we’re going to help them understand that,” he told FOX News.

Dice plans to send letters and declassified government documents that he says can prove the government’s responsibility for the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people — and he’s urging others to do the same.
Before we go getting all huffy and outraged, lets think this through. Stereotype notwithstanding, Marines are not stupid. You can’t be stupid and do what they do. The military doesn’t give live ordinance to stupid people.

They’re going to get these letters. The letters are going to be lengthy, legalistic, laughable, and covered in purple stains because, you know, the guy who puts them together...his mom always puts a little too much jelly on his lunch so he spills some of it on whatever he’s doing down in his room in the basement.

Those Marines are going to laugh their butts off. And laughter is good for morale. Thus, I conclude, Mr. Dice and "The Resistance" are actually pro-war and trying to further our efforts in Iraq by helping cheer up the troops.

Good for them!
