Skip to comments.Marine Corporal From A Bunker In Ramadi: “I Got A Message For That Douche Harry Reid”

From PatDollard.com: Today, from Corporal Tyler Rock in an outpost in downtown Ramadi. His first sentence is in response to an email from me:
yeah i know how you feel. its going to be very weird leaving this place and going back to america. weve been here for almost an entire year and have lived in the center of it the whole time. its crazy that when we got here it was so hectic and now its calmed down so much. so it was awesome to be able to see that turn out.
yeah news worth reporting
. well ramadi was once dubbed by everyone as the worst city in the world. but we have done such a great job here that all the families in the area have worked with us on driving out the insurgency and that we work directly with the IA and the IPs. the city has been cleaned up so well that the IPs do most of the patrols now and we go out with them to hand out candy and toys to the children. you can tell that the people want us here to protect them from the thugs and gangs (insurgents). granted they would rather have peace and quit but they know that if we arent here they will be thrown around by the insurgents. a good example is this one mission we did. long story short we got blown up in multiple buildings and had to run into a families house.
i spent my christmas holidays covered in ash from the mortar fire and the IEDs, sleeping under a dirty rug i found in the house. everyone was sleeping way to close for comfort just to stay warm. anyways. a family was there and they obviously didnt want us there. atleast at first. the daughters were very sick so our corpsman treated them. they didnt have electricity so we got them a generator for power, they were cold so we got them gas heaters, we got them food and water and then we gave them $500. by the end of the week long visit with them we were drinking tea with them. when we left we cleaned their house better than it was when we got there. i even have pictures with the family. they told us that they liked marines and they would help us as much as they could and they gave us some information on the insurgents in the area. we ended up catching a HUGE target down the road from there house because of it.
yeah and i got a qoute for that douche harry reid. these families need us here. obviously he has never been in iraq. or atleast the area worth seeing. the parts where insurgency is rampant and the buildings are blown to pieces. we need to stay here and help rebuild. if iraq didnt want us here then why do we have IPs voluntering everyday to rebuild their cities. and working directly with us too. same with the IAs. it sucks that iraqis have more patriotism for a country that has turned to complete shit more than the people in america who drink starbucks everyday. we could leave this place and say we are sorry to the terrorists. and then we could wait for 3,000 more american civilians to die before we say hey thats not nice again. and the sad thing is after we WIN this war. people like him will say he was there for us the whole time.
and for messages back home. i have a wife back home who is going through a tough time. i just cant wait to be back home and see everyone. haha and i cant wait to go back home and get some starbucks. i love it when those people serve me. hahaha
Thank you wherever you are, Leatherneck.
And that's from an old squid.
Those idiots back in Washington are CLUELESS about Iraq. I wish they'd just get out of the way and let us get this done. All they do is OBSTRUCT the mission.
FYI - heard two car bombs go off a little while ago - apparently near the Iranian Embassy.
When is your vacation due? Texicans need some brisket and some Shiner Bock...
On behalf of all douches,
I resent being compared to Harry Reid.
At least I'm good for something.
Summers in Baghdad make Texas summers feel downright mild. :-)
This M.I. doggy says “Semper Fidelis, Marine” and good hunting! Make it back safe!
That douche Harry Reid. I love it.
And in attempting to backtrack, Reid made a statement that he DOES support our troops who have done a fine job and that the “military mission has been accomplished.” It’s the “political” part of the war that’s been lost by President Bush.
Any chance the looney left blogs will whip themselves into a frenzy at the fact that douche Harry Reid said “Mission Accomplished”?
Harry is going to eat his words soon. He is scum.
LMAO! You go,baby!
BUMP for our brave troops.
I would demand that Harry Reid be replaced, but with what?
Don’t you know that the President is in denial about Iraq, and won’t let Congress run the show?
This guy's what America and being an American is all about, not SanFranNan and certainly not Harry Reid or that other chickensh!t traitor, Murtha. My only hope is that I'm not alone in feeling this way and that none of us forgets who the heroes are, who supports them and who is fighting against them. There is a lot of karma coming from this, good and bad, and it comes back around, good and bad.
I’m afraid that when we pull out, no matter how much we have done, the arabs try to make an example of Iraq destroy it, with Reid cheering them on. All the RATS will cheer and say “ we feel your pain”.
this Devil Dog has defamed douches everwhere...
Harry Reid needs to be tried for treason.
I can imagine what each of these young Marines would say to the douchebag Harry Reid if they met him...
