British Marines

The big news in the tabloids this weekend surrounds secret footage of a so-called training session where marines were made to fight naked with rubber sleeves and then barefisted. When one of the marines refuses to wrestle he is kicked in the face and knocked out by one of the officers dressed a surgeon.

It all sounds quite bizarre and whilst I can see the need to fight to make the soldiers tough, I don't get why they had to be naked, nor do I get what the guy was suppose to learn by being kicked in the face.

Good to see that jokes are coming out of the internet already. This from b3ta.
