Oh shut up already with your liberal bickering. The war was a mistake and will always be. Quit watching FoxNews and step into reality.
Might as well stop watching ALL the news and only listen to people who are ACTUALLY over there and see what's happpening and are part of missions on a daily basis. THERE'S where the REALITY is.

The reality is that our troops have diarhea and are vomiting because "KBR's water quality 'was not maintained in accordance with field water sanitary standards'".

I was there in March 2003-2004 with the 101st and I say we dont want to be there. Why did Ron Paul, a candadate wanting to end the war and bring the troops home, get the most money from the military than everyone else combined?

My nephew Eric was there, with you, out of Ft. Campbell. He is a funny guy, like you. You both have a great sense of humor. I hope it helped.
Thanks,

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

First of all, allow me to thank you for your service to this great Nation; Without people like you, who volunteer life and limb to preserve our Constitution, we would be in serious danger, indeed!.

Secondly, let me thank you for having the Spine and fortitude speak out against the stupidity and injustice that allowed this War to happen in the first place!

Courage comes in many forms, and you have displayed two of the most noble, here. Props to you!

Wow, hey thank you guys. I wish more people would realize that there is a difference in Supporting the Troops and Supporting the War. Its not the "either you're with us or you're with the enemy type" of ordeal.

I was told by my son, now serving there, that they have bottled water. Are you saying the bottled water is contaminated?? I pray that is not the case.

I was in Ar Ramadi for twelve months. i never drank the water because it is non potable water. There are warning signs in all of the bathrooms that tell you not to drink the water, and not even brush your teeth with it. So the blame should not be pointed at anyone but the ones who drank it.
