"Wish You Were Here"

For all the free people that still protest.
You're welcome. We protect you and you are protected by the best.
Your voice is strong and loud,
but who will fight for you? No one standing in your crowd.
We are your fathers, brothers, and sons,
wearing the boots and carrying guns.
We are the ones that leave all we own,
to make sure your future is carved in stone.
We are the ones who fight and die,
We might not be able to save the world, Well, at least we try.
We walked the paths to where we are at
and we want no choice other than that.
so when you rally your group to complain,
take a look in the back of your brain.
In order for that flag you love to fly
wars must be fought and young men must die.
We came here to fight for the ones we hold dear.
If that's not respected, we would rather stay here.
So please stop yelling, put down your signs,
and pray for those behind enemy lines.
When the conflict is over and all is well,
be thankful that we chose to go through hell.



Corporal Joshua Miles and all the boys from 3rd Battalion 2nd Marines,
Kuwait 3/9/2003

Good Morning.

This is the Daily Thread of Operation Iraqi Freedom - Situation Room - LIVE THREAD.

It is designed for general conversation about the events of the day.

Please have mercy on us dial up limited FReepers! Limit the big graphics, post links instead. A brief description of what the graphic is would help!  If you post graphics, please "size" them so that our browsers continue to load the rest of the thread!

When's baghdad bob's next speach I want to see the tanks roll in behind him while he's on air.

Why, so he can show everyone the tanks they captured?

He usually comes on between 3 and 4am CDT (Noon-1:00PM Baghdad). Today, I'm sure, he's keeping his schedule "flexible" to allow for contingencies (such as getting the hell out of Dodge).

CRAP! I have been seeing FOX vicariously thru the FReepers on this thread. We were supposed to get cable hooked up Monday. When I got home, no cable. Hubby called, and the moron said..Oh..we were going to hook up channels 100-400, but someone called and cancelled". Hubby told moron he did not know who that could be, neither of us had called to cancel...why would we cancel the day after we ordered(Me thinks they just fogot or overbooked or whatever and decided to "cancel" for us. Plus, we did not want 100-400. Why would I want 100-400? FOX is on channel 38, Gosh Ramnit! So, ALLEGEDLY, I will get cable tomorrow, and can follow along.

Shep is underappreciated, IMHO.

Pre-war, his broadcasts were rather 2nd rate, sophomoric. But he has really come into his own with his war coverage. When he "just talks" with Rick or Ollie or Greg and some of the troops, it is great to listen to the conversation. Shep's doing a great job---of course, he's got some good help from the guys in the field, too.

You're doing an awesome job and it's certainly not my intention to find fault and that is what the question mark was for. I thought I remembered very early on that they were in the Persian Gulf. I'll look around and pass on what I find.

While waiting for your FNC TV link, you can go here and scroll down the left to the War Radio -> Fox link so at least you can listen to the audio portion of the broadcast.

Be forewarned, however, that it takes a long time (2-3 minutes) to start on my PC.

It's not great, but better than nothing. (I'm listening right now in a FNC-deprived hotel room.)

US Coast Guard??

Yes, Coast Guard missing and order may be incorrect. The order of display for military flags is: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air force, and Coast Guard. I don't know if it applies to logos.

Ugghhhhh.... everytime it gets quiet and Leventhal's voice disappears, I get queasy. And everytime he asks another soldier's name I have this superstitious seen-too-many-movies feeling. Don't ask his name! It's too much like a walk-on role in this week's StarTrek!
