You obviously have no idea what our soliders go through or even why they are there. The only thing that you rambled on about was Before you were a solider you were a human being - terrorism does things to people's minds, watching fellow friends and soldiers being blown to bits is as emotional and heartwretching as opening fire on insurgents hiding behind innocent?! civilians. Maybe these civilians need to take up arms against the insurgents and I bet their chances of staying alive would be much greater. You have not had your country invaded yet - Yes, I said yet! When you do, will you take up arms against your true enemy or the people there trying to help you? Or will you sit back like a patsy and let someone else do the dirty work so you can blame them for whatever happens.

Remember these words!

The most recognized symbol for the US, after the Stars & Stripes, is the
Eagle. The following verse is taken from the Quran, the Islamic holy
book:

"For it is written that a son of Arabia would awaken a fearsome Eagle. The wrath of the Eagle would be felt throughout the lands of Allah and lo, while some of the people trembled in despair still more rejoiced: for the wrath of the Eagle cleansed the lands of Allah and there was peace."

That verse is number 9.11 of the Quran.

Maybe it is made up or make believe too!

Go to NY, go talk to a New Yorker...and talk your talk to them...real lives were lost. How does one fake that.

As for the killing of women and children...check out 'my' name. I am out here right now, through know choice of mine. It's a country where everybody looks the same. I want you to try to one day be a peace keeper and the next day be a warrior.

Or you, like the rest of the world, sit at your computer and think that you got it all figured out. Drink your Latte and take solace that one of those 'kids'(using the term lightly) didn't grow up to be the one kill one of your countrymen for an idea.

US Marines are under attack of the left wing liberals, and under daily smear campaign of the left wing liberal media including the NY Times, Washington Post and the TV channels CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC who vowed to provide a 'story' about our soldiers on a daily basis. US Marines are doing great service to their country and also the Iraqi people. They are being attacked by Al Kaida Islamic terrorists and insurgents that are equipped with Iranian RPG's, IED's and Iranians bombs, which killed many of them. There is no doubt that our USA Marines are one of the most ethical and moral military forces ever in our history. They are involved in everyday fight with the Islamic terrorists who are not dressed with any kind of military uniforms and they look like peaceful civilians. These terrorists are hiding behind women and children so as to save their lives after they attack our troops. After an IED attack on Marine vehicle, they will escape and run into civilian peoples’ houses and try to hide there behind the women and children living in the house. In one occasion, the Islamic terrorists attacked marines and the Islamic terrorists killed one US Marine, while two or more US Marines were injured. The injured soldiers chased the Islamic terrorists that were trying to hide in houses close to the incident location. Marines went into the houses and it was a life-or-death combat in the house in which terrorists and others were killed or injured. Obviously US Marines are right chasing the murderers of their comrade Marines soldiers, and obviously they should make any effort to find and kill the Islamic terrorist who killed their friend. They are not supposed to run away from the Islamic terrorists, as the left wing liberals would suggest. The left wing liberals headed by Murtha are trying to blame the US Marines before any US investigation is concluded for what happens in a matter of fraction of seconds in life-or-death face to face combat with the killers of their best Marine friends. These left wing liberals are trying to blame our highly ethical and moral soldiers, by listening to the Islamic terrorists and their supporter civilian’s one-sided stories. They believe that the terrorists who kill our Marines soldier should have American lawyer to let them ‘walk’.

This is when Martha Stewart will come to rescue of the Marines. General Miss Manners will wip our boys into the most politically correct fighting machine that the free world has ever seen.

Even more over there I would rather be judged by 12 then carried by 6. Let the soldiers do their job. If you wanted policemen you should have said that when you signed them up and trained them to kill and break things.

Stop the woosification of our Military

I believe that my fellow countrymen in uniform are among the finest in the world. I do put my head into the sand thinking that they are beyond being human. I think it is possible to snap and kill innocents in any armed forces.

Think that you have a slight twist in your panty hose there Numb Nuts. Go back and reread the dribble that you put forth in your little mementary tirade and loss of touch with reality. Take a deep breath, put down the Cool Aide and ask yourself; 'Did I actually write all that garbage and expect a normal person to think I was not insane'??.
Pretty scary stuff to say the least
