    Hm, I’ve found the following things on youtube from the kids in our military:

    1. Nasty video of some soldiers helping a fellow soldier pop a huge zit.

    2. Soldiers making a spider and scorpion fight in a glass jar.

    3. Soldiers paying Iraqi children a dollar to chant “F* Iraq.”

    Yeah, you know what? I’m not sure we’re losing anything from their inability to blog.

    In case anyone is confused about the issue, you do NOT have the same rights while you are in the military that you have as a civilian. We are limited in some things, expression being one of those them. I think the ban on posting in blogs is required, although not ideal. If I had to explain it to the people under my command I think I could do so in a way that would stress the need for control of information and security. In the military you know the rules before you sign up, or you should.

    why is this an issue? I thought all human rights were surrendered when one joined the army.

    Funny you tagged this civil liberties, since the military are by definition NOT civil.

    Wheter soldiers should blog or not, that si another question.
