Godless news media sucks. Americans are great people, and Iraq would not even exist now, if our troops were not there. They would all be dead, without decent burial, under Sadaam Hussein.
Instead of reflecting our love for our country, we get photos of flag burnings, incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing things at the presidential motorcades. – —-
Godless news media sucks. We are NOT there for the stupid oil. We have to pay for oil, just like everyone else. It costs us money to be there. We have no financial profits. News media people are liars, and I am sick of stupid people believing everything they are told. .
Now what have the terrorists done for Iraq, besides kill people and blow things up? NOTHING !!!!
All the above facts about Iraq are
verifiable on the Department of Defense website: <http://www.defenselink.mil/>

I have not seen this news in any of our main media outlets. The Iraqis we have trained are taking the lead in much of this operation and our own forces are putting a tremendous effort in this operation. The recognition and thanks are mute.
But not so for Americans like me. I love my guys in uniform. :) We are the majority opinion that counts!
*** I am still looking for the 2008 statistics !!….
Good Job, Guys !!!!!
