Ketchup Boy meanwhile accuses Bush of not armoring the Humvees. Did they forget the millions of Nazi comparisons we have had to put up with? "Misleading" into war? Worst administration ever? Support of Michael Moore? Dean's rhetoric in the primaries and now?
Total hypocrites and pansies.
GOOD NEW ABOUT HUMVEES M-1114
NICE E-Mail from my Sister son-- a good info about M-1114 humvees---a normal mission and new acronyms
Hey everyone, just thought I would write and tell everyone
that I am allright, it is getting hot over(heat and insurgency) with the heat index it was up to 119 degrees, then with the 40lb IBA vest on, when you take it off , you are covered in sweat. We have been having a couple of long days. Had a VCIED(Vehicle Concealed Improvised Explosive Device)go off the other day in Echo Troops area. A VCIED is a car bomb without an occupant in the vehicle, unlike the VBIED, they come up with new acronyms everyday. Anyway we was out patrolling and we heard it go off and we went to see if anyone needed help, the VCIED went off 10ft from a humvee, I feel better with these M-1114 humvees now. No one got seriously injured in the vehicle, except for their eardrums, but the vehicles armor protected them. The injuries came from the vehicle that was 20ft away, a soldier got schrapnel in his arm. We MEDEVACed him to the hospital in the green zone.
In his speech, Kerry twice claims that democrats' patriotism is being questioned. Rove said nothing about patriotism (or democrats, for that matter) in his remarks. He really knows how to push these guys' buttons!
I can attest to most of that letter - the IBA is a good way to lose weight gradually. And the new armor? This is the latest in good stories we've got back from theater.
I don't approve of all the alphabet soup, of course, but what're troops to gripe about?
