“The Marines were just so sweet”

At least someone appreciates what’s being done for them:

“Everyone was pushing and shoving, women were crying, saying, ‘Here’s my passport, here’s my children, take my children, just take them, take them,'” Esseily said. “It was absolutely horrendous.”
The Esseilys barely got through.
“My husband had the baby on top of his shoulders, to show that we had a baby,” Monika Esseily recalled.
“It was hot, it was humid, and we just kind of squeezed in. I squeezed in with one of my children at the gate, and I said, ‘Listen, my family’s on the other side,’ so they had to bring them in.”
Then, suddenly, things got much easier. “Right when we passed the second one, we were met with the Marines,” Esseily said.
“The Marines were just so sweet, they said, ‘Here, I’ll take your bags … you’re going to be on board pretty soon, you’ll have food, you’ll have a place to sleep, you’ll have a shower.'”
“They were just so wonderful and so sweet,” she said. “All of my emotions and all my anxiety — I just lost it there.”

    Oh, so there are decent people.
    Hoping they kick Mrs. Nsouli out of her hotel room and let her sleep by the Dumpsters and give Mrs. Esseily and her family a nice hotel room.
    Thanks for this. My faith, it hath been swiftly restored.

    I’m not sure that calling a landing force of Marines “sweet” is a compliment.

    Don’t ask, don’t tell, Mike.

    The compliment came from a woman, Mike. You’re safe.
