We'll Fight for Freedom, Wherever there's Trouble...

, Hasbro. Beck cited the IMDB page, which stated that GIJOE was a "European-based military unit known as Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity (G.I.J.O.E.), a hi-tech, international force of special operatives, takes on an evil organization led by a notorious arms dealer." He further added that the change amounted to JOE being ineffectual pansies, like the UN, and that "[He believes] some are trying to indoctrinate our kids into hating their own country, turning us into some one-world-government nightmare; hating America, turning it into a dirty word."

I found these FUTURE JOES
(GI Joe 2010 series) while following a link
from Rebecca Blood's site
for the Navajo Code Talker GI Joes
. Perhaps it's showing my age, but I really want one. Of course, I also want some of the Nisei
soldiers so that I can reenact those POW camp scenarios that I used to subject my GI Joe to as a kid. I know where the bodies are buried.
Hey, how come The Grim Reaper Site
didn't have questions about GI Joe?
