We surrender, they can have independence.
They can apply to the UN for aid.

I agree. They don't want our military. They already pay no federal income tax. Give them independence. Free PR now!

Yes may God watch over and protect all of our troops. (And forgive me for hoping the Jarheads kicked their fricking butts!)

That was a great Steve McQueen movie.

Undoubtedly this was not a premeditated ambush. Rather, large mobs of people always walk around carrying lead pipes and bats in Puerto Rico, right?

A good friend of mine was a Hartford cop in the 1970s. He told me that their choice of weapons in those days were sticks.

60 marines, and according to story, only eight came to the aid of the two attacked. Doesn't make sense.

Puerto Rico belongs to the US. If they don't want to be subject to US dictates they can vote for independence, which they have never done. I may be wrong, correct me if that's the case, but I think they would be granted independence if they so voted. Of course, without US aid they would be prostrate and they know it
