¿Qué es un Marine? - Generation Kill






De los creadores de "The Wire", David Simon y Ed Burns, la miniserie de TV "Generation Kill". Basada en el libro de Evan Wright, y producida por la prestigiosa HBO, duarante 7 capítulos cuenta las aventuras de un batallón de Marines en la Guerra de Iraq. Un periodista de la "Rolling Stone" viaja con ellos en el asalto a Bagdag, tomando nota de la crónica.



Las peripecias y aberraciones militares son la base de las historias que dan forma a la serie: soldados inexpertos y chalados, mandos que se la juegan y van a saco, materiales que no llegan, falta de respeto, tácticas absurdas, etc. Como adelanta el tráiler: "La nueva cara del ejército americano". Arena, polvo, sudor... no sería extraño que a alguno acabara los capítulos con el dolor de cabeza propio de llevar el casco todo el día. Y es que el realismo es la marca de estos dos genios de la televisión que, por cierto, ya preparan próximo proyecto: una visión sobre la ciudad de Nueva Orleans tras el azote del Katrina.



Al final del último capítulo, una voz en off explica qué es un Marine de los Estados Unidos:



"Nací el 10 de noviembre de 1775 en el cráter de una bomba. Mi madre era un M-16 y mi padre el Diablo. Cada movimiento de mi vida es una amenaza para la tuya. Como alambre de espino y meo napalm, y puedo darle un tiro en el culo a un piojo a 300 metros. Recorro el mundo persiguiendo antiamericanos. Me mueve el amor de madre, los Chevrolet, el béisbol y la tarte de manzana. Soy un bruto. Soy ese hijo de puta sucio, asqueroso, maloliente, sudoroso, repugannte y guapo, que lleva más de 200 años alejando el lobo de la puerta. Soy un Marine de los Estados Unidos. Parecemos soldaos y hablamos como marineros, pero les damos mil vueltas a los dos. Les robamos el águila a las Fuerza Aéreas, la cuerda al Ejército y el ancla a la Armada. Y el séptimo día, cuando Dios descansó, nosotros nos situamos en el perímetro, y desde entonces dirigimos la función. Guerrero de día, amante de noche, borracho a capricho y Marine por la Gracia de Dios. Sempre fidelis."

una pedazo de serie, algunos opinan que acaba siendo un poco cansina, pero es lo que tiene cuando haces algo realista :)

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear
and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
