not for the faint of heart

Go here at your own risk. The pictures are graphic and revolting.

That's who we're fighting, people.


I don't think we're fighting humans. Human cockroaches, maybe, and you deal with cockroaches by stepping on them.

We need the Russians to come into Iraq and run their 1945 Germany playbook in the areas where these Islamonazis are operating.

If the Russians keep getting hit like they are... the Russians will be along any time now.

These terrorists... Damn them.

I'm rooting for the Russians myself, but I'm concerned that we can't seem to dust off our 1944-45 playbook from the Central Pacific.

How horrible this is! Too bad the USA doesn't believe in "an eye for an eye" The bastards!!
Oh but wait, the US gets spanked/courtmartialed if they show a naked picture of an Iraqi; shame on us.

This is the most gruesome thing I've ever seen. But I'm glad I saw it (just to know what those people are like) and I appreciate you passing it along.

I do believe it's time to MOAB a couple of key locations, and make sure there are plenty of journalists around to get lots of good video. Let's start with the last five places that al-Zarquawi has been spotted. Set some sand on fire, because I'm sick to death of innocent Americans being butchered. Yes, it might mean some innocent Iraqis get killed, but that's what happens when you harbor terrorists. You're with us, or you're with them.

All you Democrats; Do these islamoshitbags need to show up in Boston or San Francisco before you realize what needs to be done here? You think Kerry telling vermin like these guys "we will leave your precious sand pile on a date certain" will slow them down one step?
We don't need to set the sand on fire, Patrick, we need to turn it to glass.
Just remember; when you vote for Kerry, you are voting for this group of animals to gain in power and strength.....and they will be playing these scenes in your neighborhood.......soon.

Wes, to quote Reagan, "there you go again". While I agree with the sentiment, constructing the world's largest glass top self-lighting parking lot may (and I hedge again, may) be premature. I think some football-field sized smoking craters would be fair warning shots.

Wes, youíre an a##hole.

I'm a Democrat. I'm a Marine. I fought in the first Gulf War.

One of the first things that comes into my mind when I see/hear reports about the killings is a small mushroom cloud from a tactical nuke.

Democrats don't want to capture these people and send them to their rooms without supper.....well, at least that's not what this Democrat wants to do.

I wish we'd never gotten into this situation. I think that Bush has really f-ed up and now more than a thousand American's are dead. And a number of very innocent people have been tortured to death.

But, now that we are there we need to take care of business. We need enough troops and enough weapons and ammo to take the bastards out....and we need to do it today.

The terrorists are willing because they know we aren't prepared for or committed to the mission.

If we aren't prepared for or committed then we need to leave....

What was your MOS, Mannaz?

Posted by: Mike James on September 24, 2004 02:07 AM

6054 and 6057.

I spent most of my time in the wing working on RF-4B, F/A-18A/B and C-130 aircraft.
(VMFP-3, MALS-11, and VMGR-352.)

I was deployed to Saudi for Desert Shield in August of 1990 and by a twist of fate -- as can happen in the Corps -- I would up being attached to a security force guarding such things as air stations and the movement of equipment and personnel here and there. Probabaly the best time I spent in the Corps.

In reading my post above and for the sake of accuracy I would change"fought" to served -- in light of what my brothers and sisters are doing in Iraq today, I don't want anyone to think I'm lying or exagerating.

Did I pass the MOS test?

Posted by: Mannaz on September 24, 2004 02:51 AM

Yes....i was there for Desert Storm as well....but damn, that was nothinig in comparison.

Posted by: Mannaz on September 24, 2004 02:56 AM

Who said my question was an MOS test? Do you begrudge my interest?

What makes Wes Jackson an asshole, exactly? You do recall the topic of the original post, don't you? People are commenting about one more poor bastard getting his head sawed off while he is still alive--are you surprised, or taken aback, that emotion might run a little high?

And part of the reason the terrorists might think we aren't "prepared for or committed to the mission" is because of guys like you. How long do you think the war against the Jihadis is going to take? Keeping in mind that several terrorists like Abu Nidal were afforded refuge in Baghdad, did you think it possible to finish it without at some point taking out the Saddam regime? Iraq borders on Iran, you know. What do you think we ought to do to keep the Mullahs from getting nukes?

"If we aren't prepared for or committed then we need to leave." For some weird reason I can't quite put my finger on, I think that was the point of your comment, all dressed up as it was in the argument from authority.

Do you think that if we bug out, that the sacrifice of the "brothers and sisters" will have been in vain? I'd like to hear your answer to Wes's question, the one about setting a "date certain" for our pulling out. Do you really think it's a good idea to give the Jihadis a timetable for when we will be gone?

Posted by: Mike James on September 24, 2004 03:39 AM

I didn't ask you about Desert Storm. Now you are beginning to come off as if you are adding details you forgot to include the first time, such as "I would change"fought" to served..."

And how, exactly, does one forget to mention his service during the actual war, and correct his mistake in a subsequent comment?

You sure are correcting a lot of your tale as you go along...

Posted by: Mike James on September 24, 2004 03:46 AM

First of all, we all know that when someone claims to have been in the military you have to wonder if they are being truthful. The very first question that follows such a claim is "what was your MOS." Generally, if a person is lying this will flush that lie out and they go away.

Now, as for the rest of my post.

I made one correction out of respect for those who are serving there today....very little of what went on during the first Gulf war is comparable to what these men and women are doing. So, I changed "fought" to "served". That simple.

I also made an addition to my post. I wanted to make sure that you knew I had served in both Shield and Storm. Maybe it wasn't important to you but I wanted to clarify .

I guess I wasn't clear in my original "Wes your an a##hole" post and for that I apologize. You are right about one thing and that's that emotion runs high when these issues are discussed.

1. We never should have gotten into this mess.

2. Once we were in the mess we should have had enough troops on the ground to do the job right.

3. Since we are committed, we need to get more troops on the ground to clean up the mess and install a (somewhat) stable government and then get out.

4. When we don't work under a deadline then we tend to linger and as we linger less gets done and more people die. So, yes, I think we need to set a deadline.

This isn't about democrats and republicans its about Americans. It's about figuring out a way to take care of a very bad situation and finding a way to avoid having more Americans killed in battle and at the hands of evil men.

It's very sad that the dialogue we have in this country is never about what WE should do, but is instead about what THEY did/do/think/said. It's pathetic.

Every time I think I know where it's at, they move it.
