Hardly unexpected, really. Entire tribes have switched back and forth depending, it would seem, on who has the money. There is no graceful way out; when we leave some group or another (if not all) will point at us and laugh. Hearts and minds my patoot, it's gold and guns that rule the turf, and we didn't go in to win. "We are here to help" can only do so much.
i say shot them all why in hell are we training them for what so they can turn on us...hmmm maybe this happened before yeah 9/11...
read dripping with *s*a*r*c*a*s*m*enough door kicking...can you say "arclight"
Maybe this is what it is going to take for the Bush Administration to open their eye's. I was in Balad at the time the so called "Surge" started in Bagdad. All it did was to drive the insurgents out of Bagdad right into my lap. I knew, and so did my entire imediate chain of command know that the "Surge" was not going to work last July, and if McCain wants a 100 year occupation, He can take my OTV and M4 and go and occupy Iraq himself. By the way, I thought that this was never an occupatin to begin with, we were there to only "Liberate" Hmmmmm?????
My sisterinlaw just got back from a 90day air guard rotation to balad( mommy of 3 and msgt, firstshirt too!)..
Look at the huge embassy. we aren't leaving; we are merely setting up the game pieces for the big resource game to come.Sorry rc, I'm a true johnny red white and blue vet of the first gulfwar, and I don't tell folks to enlist anymore..
Tango, I know exactly how you feel, I finally recieved my seperation orders last week releasing me from the INNG and as a reserve of the Army effective as of 31 March 2008. I feel about a 1,000 pounds lighter now, and with 8.5 years of total Active/Guard service, their is nothing TPTB can do under current laws and conditions to recall me back.
Did we expect different? Arabs will **** you any chance they get. Sorry for the generalization, but that is what I have experienced with all except one that I have dealt with in business.
Yup, you're right Clyde. You see, we are infidels, and as such the normal religious laws don't apply to them when it comes to interactions with us. However, even though they may violate their own religious laws in dealings with us, we are not allowed to violate their religious laws (like recreating an image of mohamed) in our interactions with them because that is wrong.
