Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

And the War rolls on.......

How many of you know about the Zarqawi letter? (I didn't)

Even CNN couldn't grasp the importance of the letter. They ended up giving more coverage to the impending E-Bay auction of Jennifer Aniston's old love letters than to the missive in which the top Al Queda leader in Mosul writes to the second most wanted man in the world, and describes in amazing detail the weaknesses and impending collapse of the terrorist network in Mosul and surrounds. Only then, did the military ask if I wanted to write about the letter.

And we wonder why the information we get says the war is sucking for us.

And from the same article....
The operation has begun. The Commander of Deuce Four, LTC Erik Kurilla, was shot three times in combat yesterday in front of my eyes. Despite being seriously wounded, LTC Kurilla immediately rejoined the intense and close-quarter fight that ended in hand-to-hand combat. LTC Kurilla continued to direct his men until a medic gave him morphine and the men took him away. I was right there.


Pray for the man. We need more like him.

This is the first I've heard of that letter.

Oh, and I saw the father of that Marine on the news the other day. Not only does he not support what they're doing in Texas, he even went and took down the cross they had put up with his son's name on it... without the family's consent! This poor man was actually quite appalled by the fact that these people were using their dead relatives to further their political viewpoints.
