so ****** sexy he gots the best body ever

I am a former member of the United States Marines. The GI Joe movie 2009 release is a shame. It has gone from real American heroes to the biggest anti-American sentiment based movie ever. Making all but two members American is a slap in the face to all former and current members of the armed services. The cartoon and comics of the 80’s where about American military branch’s coming together as a team. GI Joe has all ways been an American standard and Icon for the children of the US. Hasbro and Hollywood are more concerned that if they did make GI Joe the way it should be made with real American heroes that the movie and toy line will not do well over seas. They claim its so every country can be represented in the new times we live in coming together fighting terror. But let’s get real it’s all about the money. Taking Real American Hero out of GI Joe is showing those that it is now wrong to be American heroes. At this time there are Americans fighting and dying over seas fighting terror and keeping America’s security interest in place. GI Joe may be a just a comic/movie and toy line, but for those who know how the name GI Joe came about are true Blue. GI Joe stands for Government Issued Joe, from WWII an American Medal of Honor winner 2nd Lt. Mitchell Paige of the United States Marine Corps. Look it up some time if you are really true Blue http://www.medalofhonor.com/MitchellPaigeetal.htm. All American Military personnel are proud to call them selves GI Joes. It’s an American Calling card. I will be joining a boy cot as well as sending emails to all of my friends and family to not watch this disaster. Mark Walburn, who backed out of the movie when he read the script of the Movie. He was slotted to play Duke in the movie.
