Marines engage Korean Army in skirmish

Details are fast emerging on the Internet today of a vicious battle between opposing forces in Korea last week. U.S. Marines were stunned by the assault on their territory and appeared to be in disarray before mounting a ferocious counterattack with weapons of mass percussion.

Like everything else on the Korean peninsula, the skirmish resulted in a standoff.

      We don’t need contact sports to fulfill the urge of our young boys and men to hit something. We need to become a nation of drummers. It’s louder, and the concussive force is focused, not on a brain, but on something that we males love to make… noise. Earplugs anyone?

        Jim – totally agree with your comments. Imagine if we could solve the world’s ills through the use of music.

    Loved when the Marines counterattacked using their opponents’ own sonic devices…drumtastic.

    Isn’t this what they teach in basic training, short steady bursts, decisive movements, etc.

    • Robert Moffitt

      Actually, you’re right.

    That’s the best thing I’ve seen today (but I haven’t watched the Buddy Rich/Animal battle yet).

    It’s good to see something moving beyond politics and propoganda. Maybe both sides have learned that they other guy might not be so bad after all.
