Stars and Stripes is quoting an anonymous official as saying it was an ‘accidental discharge’ (I hate that term) of another Marine’s weapon... Friggin’ tragic, all the moreso because this will probably turn out to have been utterly stupid and avoidable if that attribution is accurate.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Accidents happen, however sad it is.
