ok i started this last night.... i dunno...i'm only a few dozen pages in, it just seems irritating when such a peacenik writes a war story...Stiles is all "Boo yah, I"m a marine!" I've never met a cocky soldier like that, i dunno.
Kind of like Quartrich in Avatar, is what you're describing?

Indeed, it's very irritating when people write military types as nothing but caricatures. When you've known the real deal, it rings hollow.
Its the sterotype that all soldiers are thickheaded grunts. I HATE it. That's probaly why i hated Avatar so much. oh well, I've put down hard cash, I'm going to press on, I'll try and be ready for the "George W. Bush Prison Planet" or the perhaps Risa has been renamed Obama. We shall see.
