I was just trying to watch “Black Hawk Down”, but couldn’t. I don’t know what I was thinking, however...One statement caught my attention...
“Now, I had requested light armor and AC-130 Spector [?] Gunships but Washington, in all its wisdom, decided against this. Too high profile, so black hawks and little birds will provide the air cover...”
Hair stood up on the back of my neck.

The next time that sick country/society attacks us, f**king nuke them to hell. Sorry, I don't give one sh*t about their women and children. Kill them all like we did in Dresden and Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They learned their lesson, didn't they?
I care more about my countrymen and children than theirs. Sue me.
Just maybe the goat humping, women abusing, death culture of mohammed will wise up - or at least back off. Either kill them all or get out. I'm tired of this half-assed Viet Nam bullsh*t. Screw nation building - their sick society will never learn. They are a perverse society and everyone knows it.
Have you read “This Time We Win: Revisiting the TET Offensive” by Jim Robbins?
Kindle version. :)
Let them build their own memorials.
Hey Lady! Just posted another blog entry by John Bernard and was going to ping a couple of people.
We need to get a real backing for this ROE fiasco. Especially with the next administration being so quiet about his foreign policies.
Another Marine who is speaking out against our rules of engagement has a blog and just posted, so I shared it here at Free Republic if you are interested...

bump for later read
Thanks for the ping, huldah1776.
The now silent bitches that for six years disparaged Bush and paraded their concern for the Military can go to Hell. Their tyrant is in control now, so the Military is merely a sacrificial necessity in their sick, duplicitous agenda.
Posted an article from Breitbart about this administration’s Rules of Engagement being responsible for the deaths of so many.
Could you ping others?
Thanks for the ping.
Others on my list have already been pinged as well.

John Bernard participated in a press conference regarding the current ROE...
Michael Yon posted a letter from a soldier fighting there, no date on the letter but posted today.
Another article about an 82nd Airborne soldier’s death due to ROE:
“”They were pleading for help as their command just left them high and dry. And to hear that suffering and that fear as a wife is heartbreaking because there is nothing we can do but comfort. It’s awful to be over there in the first place but then to know your command doesn’t have your back makes everything horrendous.””
