A US Marine of the 1st Division writes the words 'Dark Horse' on a beam of the bridge western Fallujah, Iraq, where the bodies of two American contractors killed by militants were strung up in March, sparking the earlier U.S. siege, Sunday, Nov. 14, 2004. An earlier message left by soldiers reads: 'This is for the Americans of Blackwater that were murdered here in 2004, Semper Fidelis 3/5.' (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)

I'm with you, except ...
Fallujah needs that bridge.

The US Army needs that bridge.

The bitches that disgraced fallujah and that bridge are long gone.

I feel the same way, but then they'd have to re-build it, and there are bigger things to take care of right now. God Bless our TROOPS!

What is it about that Marine's face? I cannot quit looking at it. All the colors, the battle worn helmet and jacket and his eyes. In life he is so young, but the Marine in the picture looks so timeless. It is as though he is the American Hero, American Patriot, he carries us in him everywhere. The Kerry supporter pukes are not worth the ashes that fall from his cigarette.

You said it very well, what I've felt looking at that picture. He's only 20 yrs old, but he's older, wiser and more experienced now. He's hardened, grown, yet seems so calm.

And I love the fact that women all around what to know who he is, that tells me one very important thing....Men are Back! I'm sure the NOW gang and other groups are spinning like tops over that fact.

amazing. I'm surprised that the bridge still exists.
If I had anything to do with it - it might NOT.

Glad to see no more "smiling, cheering faces" at that
bridge, just the Marine in that photo.
