Thoughts About The War in Iraq

March 5th, 2007

No, this is not another picture of a dead Marine in Iraq. This is actually a picture of me in 1993 when I first joined the Marine Corps. For many of you who read my blog often, you know that I normally dont share that much personal information about myself but this is something I feel strongly about. I promise I will not get all sentimental on you either. A few weeks ago I decided to watch the blasphemous 60 Minutes when they featured some of our finest (my fellow Marines and soldiers) protesting the Iraq war (Im sure Cindy Sheehan was in the studio audience somewhere). It brought back memories when I was on a flight down to San Diego on my way to Boot Camp. I remember how scared I was. The thought of having to go to war was heavy on my mind but I knew it was a sacrifice I had to make. The Gulf War had already ended but there was some serious tension in Mogadishu, Somalia; and I knew that I could have been next. I had to keep going ¦I couldnt give up before I even started.

My only thought right now is that I know it is tough to be in war and away from your family and friends. But, you knew before you signed your name on the dotted line that there was a possibility of going to war, especially in todays terror-filled world. The fact is that there are evil people who want to kill you, me and our children; not because there is a Republican in office and they dislike his foreign policy either. No, they hated us long before that and they are willing to come here to accomplish their goals. I am so glad that this wasnt such a problem in WW2; otherwise we would all be speaking in German right now.

    I don't know why I subscribe to feeds from your blog. You are so stupid. How do you know how they feel? Were you in Iraq? This war is wrong; Bush is a Fascist and you have no CLUE!

    bd, you are such a rude punk. Why do you come back here if you don't like the content? The war is wrong in Iraq for uneducated scums like you that have no clue whatsever what goes on outside of the US. You have no idea what REALITY really is becasue you believe everything you hear from Sean Penn and the mainstream media; and, can't do any research because you lack that skillset. You are a loser dude. Deal with it.

    Hey bd - did your parents have any children that lived? I guess there are some in this world with no shame and you should be the poster child. Oh and are you still posting from your govt. job?

    That's hilarious ...

    bd, you do realize how idiotic "I don't know why I subscribe to feeds from your blog" makes you sound right? UNSUBSCRIBE so we don't have to listen to you bitch and moan about what is really your own ineptitude.

  5. Common Sense Insurgent Says:

    Here we go with this Bush is a fascist excrement from the left again. bd - can you explain your thoughts (specifically) on why you feel this president is a fascist? In your own words please.

  6. Media Lizzy Says:

    Semper Fi, Michael. To the idiot calling Bush a fascist... screw off. Do us all a favor, join a Code Pink protest. And remember to stop at the Walgreen's and get a pacifier, sounds like you need it.

  7. bd Says:

    all you Bush lovin wackos need a reality check. You are soooo out of touch with the rest of America. Everyone (except the Bible Belt) hates you, your values and political idealogies.

    Face are in the minority!

  8. AT4 Says:

    You need to get off the bong water bd. "Except the Bible Belt"? ... as a conservative I'm just fine with being hated by the Porn Belt and nonsensical sentence fragment sputtering numbnuts like you. You should be delivered next day air to North Korea where your backward ideologies and non-linear thought processes can flourish. Yes, under the North Korean systems of government you will finally be ‘equally’ worthless.

    You’re a leftist artifact destined for mediocrity. Your ideas have been tried and have always failed miserably.

  9. 5.56mm Says:

    AT4 (like the name btw) my thoughts exactly!

  10. Michael Says: looks like I sparked up some controversy (which of course would never be my intention …) ; p

    Lizzy – thanks for the love. Semper Fi, Do or Die right back at yah!

    bd – you have been responding on this blog for quite some time and I must say that you never have anything positive at all to say. You're always so damn rude and obnoxious; and full of hatred and intolerance, which totally contradicts bleeding-heart-liberal characteristics. Get a life chump!.

  11. HAVOK14 Says:

    BD- Do you have any common sense at all??? The Bible belt never heard of that before because 80% of is Christian. I guess me and 80% percent of the population are in a minority. You really dont have any tolerance for anyone but people who agree with your extremely far left views because the last time I checked America is not totalitarian state.

    nope - he often says things he doesn't mean or even understand, it's part of his charm ... he occasionally soils his shirt with the thick excrement he spews.
