Post by redfish » Thu Aug 12, 2010 9:33 am

I just saw something on MSN that irritates me. Some Iraqi general says we gotta stay in Iraq until 2020. Good God man! Grow you some cahones and defend your own country for a change. Suck it up man you are making me sick. Take pride in your military. We have been training y'all for years now. It's past time for you to do it. Enough is enough. You can't learn to ride a bike sittin' on your buttocks. You can't learn to defend your country while we do it. Now get out there and shoot somebody! :evil: :evil: Damn.

i think they should just turn military loose....let them do their jobs, like we did almost 20 yrs. ago....these days they got so many rules of engagement, that its stupid. we did"nt have that many , of course,they did try to get our divison commander for war crimes a few yrs, back, only crime that i seen , to me was they stopped us way too soon. ... :wink: ...... i know, i know, .... i"m a sick puppy.

how very true you are.....time to come home...we"ve babysitted long enough. besides we gotta get ready to finish Korea up soon , i think. and when we do.....lay waste to the place so that they"ll never start anything again. to hell with the press, an being nice, and what the rest of the world thinks.. let the military do what they"re trained to .....kill, lay waste ,in the end it"ll save alot of American lives, than holding them back does.
look at israel, they don"t take nuttin from nobody....an nobody messes with them , cause they"ll come after ya hard !

Well, the plus on the Iran deal is that the Israelis are aching to go in and fuk some Iranians up which will lighten the load on us should we also go in.
