Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
I think we all did. Juvenile things, you know. The stuff that makes you cringe as an adult. We did it because in our special teenaged circles, we didn’t have anybody telling us that it was childish, or wrong, or that there were simply better and easier alternatives to accomplishing certain things.
I used to pee in public. And before you turn the page to click the X button, realize that every single person on this planet has probably done it before.
It was only after being stopped and questioned by a police officer, when I realized that trying to explain why I had to pee on a highway overpass pillar was more troublesome, and more humiliating than the act itself.
Which brings us to this next story.
A US Army soldier has been fined after getting caught urinating on the building of the Lithuanian Ministry of the Interior in Vilnius, Lithuania. The incident is the latest in what seems like a never-ending series of unpleasant situations involving NATO troops in the Baltic countries in recent weeks.
Monday’s incident was not the first time NATO soldiers have run into trouble in the Baltic states in recent weeks. On Tuesday, A NATO Hummer carrying US servicemen accidentally rammed into a civilian vehicle in Marijampole, Lithuania, seriously injuring three young women inside.
Last week, a man in rural Latvia was scared half to death after NATO troops and equipment showed up on his plot of land without warning and began live fire exercises. Before that, four NATO troops from Germany got into a drunken brawl in a small town in Lithuania.
Late last month, a 56-year-old man in rural Estonia was charged after chasing NATO troops out of his property, while elsewhere in Estonia, NATO forces crashed three vehicles in two days’ worth of drills, one into a ditch, another into a civilian motorist, and a third into an electric power line.
You know, somehow I don’t think peeing on a government building is consistent with the Army’s values, and somehow I don’t think it represents the army as a whole, but then again, I think we can blame the building wall for being so enticing! Sorry Lithuania, but that’s the price for freedom and democracy.
