Well, I have made some headway on this damn site and I am extremely tired.

Unfortunately there are times when it is impossible for me to sleep so I climb into the cockpit of this time machine.

I call it a time machine because, as those of you who spend much time starring at the unnatural glow of a monitor have already learned;

Time passes at an accelerated rate so when you think you have been behind the keyboard for an hour or so you find out that it has actually been 6 hours and your spouse is asking you if you want your mail forwarded to your new address in your office.
You know, not to get too involved just yet because I have ALOT to say on this subject, but I was just listening to a guy on FOX News talking about how we FAILED in Iraq.
Hmmmmm… We “Failed”… let me think about that…
I would like to offer this food for thought…

First off who the fuck is we?? I don’t remember seeing him on any missions in Iraq.

I was in Iraq, I had soldiers under me in Iraq, I have buddies and family (which by the way are both the same thing to a soldier) who are in Iraq, I have friends who’s last breaths were in Iraq, and you know what…

I never failed a mission, my soldiers never failed a mission, niether my buddies or my family members ever fail their missions and my friends who gave their lives for the mission.. I DARE you to say they failed.
The only ones who failed are you sorry ass bastards who only think about what is trendy to support this week.
I can’t tell you how many times before 911 that I heard people bitching to me about how we ‘Should have gone on into Iraq and kicked oh Sadam’s ass, but the Government lost its nerve and just let him crawl back home’.

When we got hit in 2001 every single one of you were screaming to send me and my boys out to chase down the big bad Hajis.

Then when I was on a counter terrorist team I had people telling me how we ought to go get rid of the bastard in Iraq who was paying the families of “Homicide Bombers” ( a term I learned while in Iraq which I prefer to use, I don’t wish to give them the misguided sense of satisfaction to think they are anything better than chicken shit murderers of innocent people).

Well damn it, we went in like we were told to, took the entire country over in just a few days ( because we ARE the shit) and then we spend the rest of the time trying to keep the innocent people safe from all the ignorant shit heads.
You may think of the Iraqi people as some abstrct mass of ‘Them’  but most of them actually are people who love their children as much as I love mine.
When you think of what it would be like for you to live in fear everyday that your child will be shot, blown up, kidnapped for ransom, driven over, raped or even worst of all just vanish, you can then know that you arent even close to what these people have to look forward to each day.
Then I hear all these brainiacs in Washinton (or wishing they were in Washington) who swear they know what the Military should do and how to do it.
Hell truth be told most of them are just a bunch of loud mouth politicians trying to jump into the lime light by saying what they think is good for that day, who I venture to guess have no idea what the difference between M16-A1 and a M4 is or what slicing the pie means or even tell me what a “Prick” 104 is.

Ohhh yeah they know how the Military Operations are run…  Go back and watch PVT Ryan or Band of Brothers again while your secretary, personal assistant, aid, or what ever you wish to call them, rubs your feet and tells you how sexy you are in stolen hotel robes you fat bastard and leave the real warriors alone.

But these bone heads think they can tell my Generals how to do their job and put bull shit expectations in the heads of all the people here at home so that they start losing confidence and faith in what we are doing which translates to losing belief in us.

Then when we are no longer the flavor of the month all of a sudden everyone is saying shit like ‘I never wanted our troops in Iraq’, ‘I think we went into Iraq for no good reason’, and even shit like ‘I see no reason why we can’t be completly out of Iraq in 15 months’.

WTF!! you know what all of you sound like to us who were and are fighting in Iraq, Afghanistan, and yes even still Kosovo (remember that word?), and hundreds of other places around this damn planet?

You sound like a bunch of winy ass, insecure, untrustworthy, lyng fucks who will turn your back every single one of us just to be invited to the latest ‘I want something new’ party and get a free glass of French wine.

Hell, quit cheating on your wives, pay your taxes, kiss your kids, read your Military for Dummies book, then go on a patrol in Baghdad, or Nassiriya, for a year or hell just go on a sight seeing trip in the beautiful mountains of Afghanistan for six months, then MAYBE you will have a right to criticize me and my soldiers until that time…
