    BUT… This shouldn’t have happened. Someone BETTER be investigating. Because someone messed up big time.

    And, no, I don’t care if that’s what the left is saying. Because it’s true. Yes, sometimes recruits die because of some genetic thing about heat or stress or whatever.

    But 7 killed and 7 more wounded in an explosion? It was either serious negligence or sabotage. Sorry.

    More bad news. An eighth Marine had died from his wounds.

    Requiescat in pace.

    A mortar round going off in the tube is very rare but it happens. Seriously doubt it was sabotage. Firing off mortars is very routine, I’m thinking a bad round.
