    I cleaned this up. Hope it doesn't get me booted off.


    Today in the mess hall, where there is usually jovial conversation, there was silence, long faces, and broken spirits... Everyone, to include all American soldiers, marines, sailors, airmen, Iraqi Nationals, Bulgarian Soldiers, etc, etc... was speechless, tired, demoralized and stunned.... all ate in erie silence.....<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />
    Last night, while we watched the press conference with the President, there was utter disgust, and the common feeling amongst us all that we soldiers are now the loneliest people on Earth.... we fight an enemy over here, and we have a country full of enemies to go home to that are our countrymen. We watched President Bush say his own political funeral, our commander and chief.. as well as ours..... He tried so hard to spin it, but... well.. there is no way to soften such a morale blow.
    While you sit and Monday morning quarterback what we work so hard to do for you out here, just know that the spirit of your team is wounded..... YOU liberals, you America have done a great job of demoralizing us... Thank you.
    Do us a favor though, when we do come home, spare us the ceremony....... We all now know that it is a bunch of crap, and what you think of us.......
    I have to say that right now, I would rather be a pxxxy ass Frenchman, even though they have no will to fight, at least they have the balls to make a decision and stick with it...... They stuck to their guns about staying out of this war, even if it was the wrong decision......America on the other hand, goes off half cocked, and when the decision appears to be a hard one, or something that might cost a little bit, they turn tail and run.....
    WHAT A NATION OF PxxxxxS!!!!
    This week I am NOT proud to say that I am an American..........I think it is obvious why... See, we just have told the world that we are not a nation of people who are tough, and will fight for what we believe in... We have told the world that we are a giant coward that will shy away from any difficult challenge...
    So, while you eat your cheetos, and sit there and watch your lazy ass get fatter, dumber and happier Joe Citizen.. Just remember this, I, and all my comrades paid a dear price to come this far and have you decide that we should fail...
    Realize this, because of your action this week America.... do not expect so many men to be so willing to stand up for your next little whim just to be cut down in the middle of it all............
    Realize this also.. you have just put a heavy price on the heads of us all...... Now that we are branded as cowards, we are an easy target, oh so inviting for the taking....... I swore to protect your children in your beds.... yet you fling the door wide open in spite of me to invite the scourge.... Well.... have it your way then.
    Because of this, September 11th will soon be overshadowed by these same enemies.. my advice to you is get your lazy, self centered ass up and make peace with your God, and your family.. cause, time will come when they may not be there for you................Because you kicked me in the teeth, and so many others, I know I won't any more.. "
    Pray for our soldiers. the Vietnamization of Iraq begins. This really sucks I know

    Jim, I'd like to open up a little respectful debate about this letter.

    First, let me explain, I'm not a Democrat, I don't like them, but I'm not a Republican, I don't like them either. If anything I'd be a Libertarian.

    I'm wondering where this letter came from as it sounds like propoganda to me.
    "Even the Iraqi Nationals and Bulgarians are stunned and demoralized"? Just because in America, the dems won the house and senate? I don't see that being very true. I don't believe the average Iraqi or Bulgarian knows jack about our political system. At least that was the case when I was serving in the middle east back in 1990.

    I may be missing a news story or something, but nobody said anything about cutting and running as far as I'm aware.

    All of a sudden, in the matter of a couple of days, citizens have become lazy and self centered? I don't think our troops have that view of the American populace today any more than they did last week.

    Again, not taking the dems side here, but it does sound like rep propoganda.
