The Greatest Song Ever!!!

Recommended Posts

This ones better LOL

 

Loved the song' date=' had to look up some info on it. Thought I'd pass it on, and was surprised it has made it to Wiki:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadji_Girl

 

Hadji Girl

 

"Hadji Girl" is a song by Corporal Joshua Belile of the United States Marine Corps about a fictitious encounter with a family of Iraqis. A video of Belile performing the song was posted anonymously on YouTube.com in March 2006. It sparked controversy at a time when Marines were facing public scrutiny over the killings in Haditha. YouTube subsequently removed the video from their site, rejecting any further uploaded versions as violating the site's terms of use.

 

In the song, the Marine protagonist meets an Iraqi girl who convinces him to follow her to her house. After arriving, the Marine is confronted by the Iraqi girl's father and brother who are armed with AK-47 rifles. The Marine then uses the girl's younger sister as a human shield. The father and brother attack, killing the sister, as the Marine laughs maniacally. The Marine then hides behind a TV, returns fire, and kills the father and brother. Cheers and clapping from the unseen audience can be heard in the background of the video.

 

Belile later said the song was meant only as a joke based on lines from the film Team America: World Police, and apologized to those who were offended by its content. The performance, according to Belile, was at Al Asad airbase in Iraq, where Belile's helicopter gunship unit was posted until March 2006. In the video, Belile is wearing parts of a uniform, although not enough to characterize him as "in uniform" as no nameplate or national markings are visible. The US military, like many others, allows service members and military employees to pursue their own interests when not in uniform.

 

He was later exonerated of all wrongdoing.

 

Recording deal

Shortly after the controversy began, many conservative bloggers and radio hosts went to the defense of the Marine, furthermore, talk show host Mike Church planned to record and release the song. While Belile was not to be part of the recording originally because of his commitment to the military, Church indicated that he would still receive royalties from sales.

 

Further reports indicated that Cpl. Joshua Belile planned to record Hadji Girl with Hits Music Studios, and the conservative talk program The Mike Church Show planned to be the first to air it, said Jimm Mosher, co-owner of the North Carolina studio. These plans were later shelved. Mosher said Belile still plans to record the song. Belile has said he will leave the military when his five-year enlistment ends in October 2007. "We're wanting to record and produce it," Mosher said. "I think it tells a great story."

 

I miss you leathernecks, Semper Gumby!

Not sure if that is true... Maybe before there was a western influence over there. But I highly doubt it now. They actually had quite a few beautiful Iraqi women that worked as translators with us. Though I think there are far more uglies then cuties over there.

Yeah the hot ones we had(translators, 2 i think) had a C-wire fence around their tent and a guard at the opening. It was funny to watch all the desperate Joe's swarm that area like flies on a fresh turd.

I had to talk to the homeowners every time we took over one of their houses for a few hours or days. Mainly I talked to old guys and hags. It was just nice to have something worth looking at for a change.

Seems to be a common theme these days for the Army and the Marines. All my non-combat assignments were pre-2001.
