What The Fuck File..# 5

I'm sure you've been hearing the news about the March 15th incident in Ishaqi where 11 Iraqis..were killed. Just heard a news cast that these marines have been cleared of any wrong doing.

The incident in Haditha..news is..there will be charges in this particular event. Where marines are being accused of killing 24 or more innocent civilians..including women and children.

The Prime Minister of Iraq says these are daily occurrences..that our soldiers don't respect the Iraqi people.

We're hearing that 99% of our forces..act in an honorable manner and don't deliberately kill innocent civilians. I do believe that. And I respect and honor each and every one of our soldiers. However..regarding the other 1%..well consider this.

Many of these people are there on 2nd and 3rd deployments. Many of these soldiers are young..18..19..20 years old. They are frightened..war weary and face death..every single day. They are human beings..being asked to perform over and above what anyone should be expected to do. Do I condone..the killings? No. Do I think those responsible should be punished? Yes. However..I ask..how would such a situation effect you? Would you snap..under such circumstances?

How dare..our so called president..and Rumsfeld..even contemplate laying the entire blame only on the heads of these soldiers..who actually did the killing. Where are the commanding officers? Where are the generals? Where are the policy makers who pushed for and allowed this debacle..to take place? And when the fuck do our so called leaders step up and take responsibility for their own lies..arrogance..ill planning and down right incompetence? I say lay the blame where it belongs.

No disagreement in this quarter.....just a sad sinking feeling.

Dusty...
As always..appreciate your imput.

Glimmer...
Let's hope there's actually some decent choices this election.

Trillogy...
Can you deny that the current Republican administration..most likely lied to get us into this war. Can you deny that this war has been mismanaged..that soldiers have been deployed..redeployed..again..and again..some as many as 4 times. Can you deny that the generals who tried to warn this administration against this war..and/or tried to get them to plan better..were dismissed.

Can you deny that the Republicans vote along party lines..and deliberately shut out debate and prevent amendments to various bills/issues by the Democrats..and through these tactics..have effectively emasculated the Democrats. Can you deny that the Republicans control both houses of Congress..that there is a Republican president in the White House..that the Secretary of State..the Attorney General..the Secretary of Defense..etc..etc..are Republicans?

No..Trillogy..I don't align myself with any political party. If it were the Democrats..in power..doing these things..I'd be speaking out against them. But given the circumstances..who do you suggest should be blamed?

Red...
I'm feeling pretty much the same.

What, you expect even common decency from that bunch? cpome on Kiss, you GOT to start sharing the good shit. this "war" has the potential for fucking up our armed forces BIG TIME. I know first hand what a year under similar conditions can do to good troopers. Second and third deployments? Obscene. Ah, but what the fuck. I am now an anti-American marxist revolutionary. Or at least that's what tiger says. I actually feel honored. Joe

Daniel...
Appreciate you stopping by and commenting. Thank you.

Magahee...
To just say thank you..seems very inadequate. How do you thank someone who has lain their life on the line countless times..and been in the maw of a hell many of us can't begin to imagine?

How are you doing now? And please tell me sweetie..what can we do to support you and all those others like you..who give so much?

Bush lied to get us there and now more innocent lives will be lost because of it. Incidents like this will happen. It did in Vietnam where a whole village got wiped out. and it most likely happen again in some other war.

Isn't it interesting how people begin to label you when you speak out against something you don't agree with. Isn't that what democracy is all about. I think we have a duty to speak out when something is wrong. Our troops are being abused by this administration..in the worst way possible. They..as well as our country..as a whole..will have to live with it for years to come. And lets not even mention the effect on the Iraqi people.

And you're right Joe..it goes beyond politics..to a matter of just common..human decency. I'm a believer in judging people by what they do..not what they say. I'm sure you know that..in spite of the lip service given..by the administration..about "supporting our troops..our veterans"..that some of the funding has been cut..that provides various areas of support for them. It boggles the mind..that any American can continue to support the hypocrisy of these politicians. Sometimes I feel like we've fallen through..into the Twilight Zone..and millions of Americans have become unable to process what they see and hear. Or perhaps..they see and hear only what they can feel comfortable with..and deny the rest. Perhaps the age of mass mind control has arrived..and many of us just don't know it.

KMS, TWO more YEARS, of these guys controling the direction of OUR country, us being fed partial truths, and witnessing the fallout from their "REACTIVE" occupation of IRAQ.
All at the expense of our troops, and their families.

Hi..and thanks for stopping by and commenting. And welcome to AdultFriendFinder.

Magahee...
Good morning. I'm happy to hear you're doing well.

Congratulations on med school..and good luck. I'm sure you'll do well. Any thought yet on an area of specialty..or is it too soon to know yet?

I'll check for the websites you mention. I'd love to send letters/packages to our troops..especially anyone who doesn't have family here at home.

BigHand...
Welcome to my blog and AdultFriendFinder. Thanks for stopping and AMEN!!

Robot...
Thanks for stopping and commenting. Love your sarcasm..very effective..and sounds just like some of those lame explanations heard all too often.

I feel like this president and his cronies are a cruel joke being played on..not only this country..but the world..as a whole. Or perhaps..it's a collective nightmare. Let's hope we wake up soon!

Kiss

Myg...
Don't you just shudder when you think about it? TWO MORE YEARS!! Eh gad!

But ya know..I guess there is something to be grateful for. Let's hope that those Secret Service people protecting Bush..are very.. VERY good at their jobs. Imagine..Chaney..having to step in and take over..or should I say..actually having the title of President. Can you say Zig Heil!?

Kitten...
Thanks for coming by and commenting. I know what you mean..it sickens me..quite literally.

Dusty...
Friendly fire?? Rather a contradiction in terms..don't ya think? Ah..the mass confusion of war and mayhem. Grab your ass and prepare to die.

Sadly passing the buck has been since the beginning of time and I for one have seen it cost tax payers money in the Republican party and Democrat Party from the lies and not saying yes I am responsible. Great post. {=}

Hi..thanks for stopping by and commenting. You are right. But we..the tax payer..the citizen are the biggest buck passer of them all.

Hello again. Something tells me you're partial to working with children. Good luck again. I'm sure you'll do well.
