Cpl Pettit,

Is that a 1/2 insignia in your signature? You might be interested in my new book, Marines in the Garden of Eden. It tells the story of the battle for An Nasiriyah in which 1/2 led the charge into the city.

I would venture to guess that if the Iraq of Saddam Hussein had the ability to develop an internet and if he would have said Iraq sucks, he would have quickly had people at his door. We can a...
