    Well, that brings back memories. Been in that situation a few times but since we`re Marines all we had were f*ckin thin-skinned humvees, no armor like those army strykers. Good thing most of those hajjis can`t shoot worth a sh*t.

    We would go out on patrol and were told our mission was to "move to contact." I`ll never forget the first time I heard that, I looked at my platoon Sgt and said, "By move to contact, you mean we`re going to wander around hoping someone shoots at us so we can shoot back right?" He replies, "Yup, that`s we`re gonna do" and laughs... then we all laughed and got ready to go, hahaha!

    Blah blah blah
    War sucks! That`s why it`s called "war". There will be civilian casualties and other damage. I feel for the guys fighting but I hear libretards going on about "civilian casualties" and it pisses me off. That`s why it`s called "war"! It sucks for everyone. . . except Defense Contractors. They get a payday.

    Dude, if you don`t want to get messed up in the head, your body broken and quite likely lose your life, don`t sign up to fight in rich men`s wars. War-tards.

    @whodat, my boyfriend is a Marine and served in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well. He always tells me that the Marines get hand-me-down equipment, pooty vehicles, etc. He tells me a lot of stories about his time there.
