As if it wasn't hard enough being an American soldier, our brave fighting men are having their MySpace and YouTube access taken from them. The popular sites are now verboten on official military machines.

"This recreational traffic impacts our official DoD network and bandwidth ability, while posing a significant operational security challenge," General BB Bell, the US Forces Korea commander said in a memo.

Members of the military can still access the sites on their own computers and networks - but defence department computers and networks are the only ones available to many soldiers and sailors in Iraq and Afghanistan.
