Yes, situations are different all across the country of Iraq. Opinions vary greatly from one region to another. I was just giving my personal perspective of the area of Mosul while I was there. No offense was intended by the post so I appologize if any was taken.

I doubt anyone took offense. I appreciate your kind words and insights into what you saw going on in Iraq. My sister-in-law also said the same thing (It's different in different parts)

I don't really know why I'm replying to this thread other than to clear up some possible misconceptions. Biohazard81 posted, "I could not shoot someone who I don't believe is in the wrong". Just to be clear here, the US Armed Forces are not there to shoot people and as a member you are NEVER asked to shoot someone who is not actively shooting at you or another US Armed Forces service member FIRST.






No you're right. I agree with that and it wasn't my intention to appear otherwise. I would of course defend myself and my colleagues\mates but what i meant was, i would rather not put myself in a position (ie. the armed forces) where i would have to do this. I believe its a very personal choice that boils down to the ability to do 'a job'. I think i would have nighmares for life for killing anyone in that war(due to my own beliefs on the matter).

I would not however have nightmares about killing a madman that killed my family.

Name calling users who you are talking to and name calling 3rd parties are two different things.

why do people sign up for the army or reserve, and then go AWOL when its time to do their job.
the pay is nice until you have to do the job.
its like being a fire fighter and not wanting to fight fire.
i realize people dint agree with the politics of war, usually dint.
but as a soldier your job is to do what your told, not just the shit you want to do.
and many people in Iraq right now know they are helping an oppressed people and the things they are accomplishing now might not been seen as helpful for many years.
again this was the US having to do the UNs job, and if one doesnt grasp the importance of what we are doing it is possible that person doesnt understand global politics in a way that is accurate.

He doesn't understand politics because he doesn't believe the way you do?

no no no there are simple provable facts, and if you hate bush or anyone so much that you cant see these facts, or if you draw all your info from one source, then you dint understand. and i wasn't saying anyone specific doesn't understand, it just seems that the majority of the posts on this forum have a negative bush tone and i have heard very little fact and lots of opinion, this is not understanding politics. believing things is not the same as knowing things.

Nonsense, people sign up to defend america and get money for college, not be misused in a war ot make Bush's daddy proud. The better question is Why would Chimpy (Bush) send our soldiers to a war that wasnt required to defend us ot would mkake us les safe and misuse them?

Either name calling is OK or its not. You think Bush deserves to be called names because you disagree with him. But when someone in this thread had a disagreement and threw out a name (a very mild one at that) you said it was not warranted.

Just thought I'd point THAT out...

and FYI- I'm not a Bush supporter, I'm just tired of all the hipocracy amongst the rabid Bush-haters.

Whats the difference?  Either its acceptable or not.  Personally I think its better to name-call when it is someone you are having an exchange with.  At least they have an opportunity to defend themselves.  Name-calling a third party who will never respond is just a pussy thing to do.


Oh, I forgot, Chimpy is a piece of human waste. :rolleyes:
