    Please help with this one. Damn, just damn. Specialist David Mahlenbrock was killed by an IED on December 3rd in Kirkuk, Iraq. I received this email via Soldier's Angels. It's from David's Squad in Bravo, 65th Engineers and they are forwarding a request from David. It appears that David had a special letter sent to his squad in the event of his death. Hold on to your seats, folks: Dear 1st Squad, If you’re reading this, then I’ve died for our country. I just hope it wasn’t for nothing. After the IED went off yesterday, I wanted to write this...

  • A city in ruins, sky thick with smoke: 'let's kick ass ... the American way'

    In the huge, muddy field which serves as a forward base, Major-General Richard Natonski prepared his troops for the battle ahead. 'We're goin' in to raise the Eye-raqi flag above Falluja - to give it back to the Fallujans,' he shouted, the eyes of the entire 1st Marine Division on him. Pausing to remember the marine corps who fought in Vietnam, Korea and the two world wars, they then stood to attention and launched into the marine hymn. 'Only two songs send a shiver up my spine,' said one marine, his face scored with the pockmarks and confidence of youth....

    Democrats seem the "squirrely" ones sung about in a concert by Toby Keith on Country Music Television tonight. Merle Haggard called in the show, requesting his old song, "The Fightin' Side of Me." It was the original 'Angry American' song. The lyrics seem to fit, some of our own countrymen:

    FORT WORTH, Texas -- A bus driver for country singer Toby Keith is recovering Tuesday morning after being shot on a North Texas highway. George Hampton told NBC 5 he was driving up Interstate 35 Monday night when a single bullet pierced the bus. Hampton said he didn't know where the shot came from or why he was targeted. Carrollton police have said they do not believe this is a case of road rage. Hampton was heading north toward Oklahoma, wrapping up the last leg of a long trip from Florida, near the George Bush Tollroad when the shooting happened....

This was the greeting a 19-year-old soldier received from his countrymen while on medical leave from Iraq, according to a report by the Columbus Dispatch.

    Two views: Jonah, This story illustrates something I have been telling people for awhile now. For all the Lefts talk of "We support the troops but not the war", what a good number of them want is a return to the days when spitting on soldiers in airports and yelling baby killer was considered socially acceptable. You watch, incidents like these will proliferate as the Left becomes more desperate. Eventually, their political leadership will be on board as well albeit more subtly to be sure. And this one from a guy I suspect came in from a Daily Kos link...

    I know that Darryl Worley will be on stage at the RNC convention. I'm betting He'll sing "Have You Forgotten." I'm wondering if their might be a surprise performer one night. What would happen if the opening bars of "Angry American" (Courtesy Of The Red White And Blue) came over the speakers and Toby Ketih rose up on that circular stage? You know that, whether he alluded to "the American way" or not, just singing the song would really piss off the libs (particularly Peter Jennings) and would absolutely delight Bush supporters.

    Elton John has said stars are scared to speak out against war in Iraq because of "bullying tactics" used by the US government to hinder free speech. "There's an atmosphere of fear in America right now that is deadly. Everyone is too career-conscious," he told New York magazine, Interview. Sir Elton said performers could be "frightened by the current administration's bullying tactics", The singer likened the current "fear factor" to McCarthyism in the 1950s. "There was a moment about a year ago when you couldn't say a word about anything in this country for fear of your career being shot...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq -- More than 500 soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen crowded around a stage at a U.S. installation to hear country star Toby Keith and 1970s rocker Ted Nugent.

They had previously performed for U.S. service members in Kosovo, Germany and Italy.

    ILLESHEIM, Germany — There were no “Angry Americans” in Illesheim as rocker Ted Nugent and country giant Toby Keith unleashed a free Memorial Day concert to pay tribute to soldiers and their families. About 7,000 people from military communities in Germany attended the concert. Many communities offered free bus transportation to the site. Before the concert, hundreds of people had their photos taken with Keith and Nugent. In an effort to get all of the people in line in during the hourlong photo opportunity, groups of at least 10 people were rushed through. Digital photos will be available in about...
