UPDATE; I am the Soldier holding the flag. We RESCUED it from anti-war protestors in Lawrence, Kansas around 2004. After taking this picture we turned it onto the local VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) for proper disposal according to military honor and regulation.

"What a bleeding heart fag. He definitely is not a true soldier! A real soldier knows that some innocents will get in the crossfire,it's just a part of war! You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs."
So if a terrorist was using you as a meat shield for the bullets you'd rather both of you be killed rather than an alternative method which may only kill the terrorist? GREAT IDEA. It'll get all of the people who support it killed (as well as millions more as collateral damage.)

break the law. I'm not a soldier because little in the way of real threat was being addressed by our nation in the later half of the 90's. Now I've passed my prime and have a wife and kids. Mind you most of you should know soldiering is a young man's game. But would I go do my part now? I can easily say yes but what are the words of somone who has an excuse worth aye? Seriously though I would again like to state that it rarely takes an "independent source" much to smuggle tapes past the us government. Most of you know that breaking the law does not mean that the us government knocks on your door. That happens when you get notices/caught. So again, where are the tapes of all this puported abuse? I have seen tapes on another website of everything from combat footage to some grusome after effects but where oh where is all that footage of dead Iraqi civillians. Lastly why oh why is it that so few of the protests pics are taken by soldiers are taken in sandy environs?

In response to nettech98's comment on Iraqi mentality. I believe an oft quoted phrase about giving people freedom versus them earning/fighting for it is appropriate but I don't have that particular book on hand. That is a sad state that has plagued most people fighting for the freedom of the population at large throughout history. Many people would rather be alive, in a home, not threatened by death, well fed and even have a job than have freedom. Freedom sometimes means living in difficult times. But you have the choice to change your own life. Most people who claim we do not have freedom really mean that they would be uncomfortable giving up their soft couches, internet connections and inported coffee for little things like control of their own lives. Mind you most of these same said people become "revolutionarirs" by going out in the streets with masks on in large groups shouting their own personal greivances in the street. Mind you they do not get arrested unless they bre

@osiris: My earlier comment about you ragging on the ARNG was mostly tongue in cheek. I too was brainwashed into the the ARNG was a bunch of rag-bags until I saw first hand the high degree of experience the Guard brings to the table. Most Soldiers in the regular Army just fulfill their obligation and move on - just like our MP friend. Yet the Guard has Soldiers with 10, 20, 30 years experience in their fields PLUS their civilian experience. Nothing to scoff at. And in this day and age the Army cannot fight a war without the support of the Guard and Reserve - we each have our piece of the puzzle.
Which brings me to another point about our MP's posting. The name-calling of fobbits and pogs. How many support personnel does it take to keep a grunt in the fight? 5? 6? Who refuels them? Resupplies them? Treats their wounds? Who has a hot meal waiting for them after a patrol? A fobbit perhaps? But if you're doing corrections duty in a detainment facility you don't have those worries

Ollie: I agree with you in part, but what the Iraqis had back then was stability. They knew what to expect. It was a brutal, oppressive stability, but it was known and 'stable'.

Now it's not the same. The might be safe, they might not. They might be able to speak or vote without reprisal, they might not.... Etc., etc..

It's vaguely like battered spouse syndrome. They treat you like crap, but you know if you toe the line you'll probably be OK. And if you get punished you probably did something to 'deserve it'. Warped, yes. But people who have been oppressed all their lives don't necessarily know any different. To them it is 'normal'.

Yet your point about those who benefit is certainly valid.

@ nettech98: Yes, the 795th MP Battalion is a training unit. It's at the Army Military Police School at Ft. Leonard Wood in Missouri. That unit hasn't been in combat since WWII.

The last class from there just graduated this past August, so if he's still identifying with them he's AIT... either near the end Black Phase and sll pumped up, or possibly at the beginning of Gold Phase, and since he's being taught by NCO's who have been in the sh*t thinks he knows something by osmosis.

Either way, his quickness to "try and convict" the soldier in the photo, then bitch about how he's against the war without realizing that he just did the exact same thing he's accusing the soldier in the photo of makes me raise an eyebrow.

He's still a trainee, and a self-righteous one to boot.

SPrinkZ "This war is a sham. When the Iraqis cry that Saddam was better, you have to see you're doing something wrong."

All dictators must have the support of a substantial minority who enjoy power and privilege in exchange for their support. There were quite a number of Germans who were sad that Hitler was defeated, just as I'm sure the guys who worked in Saddam's rape rooms were pretty bummed to lose their gigs.

If some Iraqis say they were better off under Saddam, it was because they were benefiting from the oppression, exploitation, and suffering of many others. F**k 'em!

As for medals, tabs, etc., here's where I stand: Your Airborne tab is nothing to sneeze at, but plenty of people jump out of perfectly good planes LOL. Likewise the Air Assault Badge. The SF tab is nothing to sneeze at, and your CIB, Master Combat Parachutist Badge, and other awards you mentioned deserve the utmost respect.

For another Soldier to belittle them just reeks of ignorance and disrespect. People don't have to respect 1SG Lee the man, but anyone who knows anything will respect those awards, as do I.

Few of us can (or care to) PROVE our service here on the Internet. I could, but what would that accomplish? Suffice it to say that in my case I still serve, and to put it in perspective for the youngins, I have served continuously for longer than G795mp has been on the face of this earth.

It doesn't make me better, tougher, smarter, cooler, etc. But for those of you looking to know what the Army is all about, look to someone with experience every time.

No harm top. I too am taking offense at a no-time-in-service SPC(?) who claims to have been 'downrange' trying to pose as an authoritative source. As I pointed out in my last post, he is also hyprocritical. We can speculate all day long about the source and circumstances of the picture, but G795mp represents himself as a Soldier, and he would therefore be violating the very laws he quotes. Bet he won't turn himself in tho....

BTW, isn't G Co, 795th MP BN a training unit? Like AIT/MOSQ? If so, what 'real Soldier' would identify with that instead of their current unit or prior combat unit?

Actually I'm leaning towards throwing 5Cats' Calico in there, one less cat in the world is never a bad outcome.

You do realize that we do not have free-media here. And that same video goes to probably some higher up--and another one, etc. etc.

This war is a sham. When the Iraqis cry that Saddam was better, you have to see you're doing something wrong.

I've really gotta ask this one. You know just about every combat squad carries a video camera these days right. Then there is the fact that so many soldiers have digital cameras and such as well that they do carry (I've seen plenty of combat footage to back it up too). If our soldiers have spent 7ish years slaughtering iraqis then...where is the video of the bodies? The first iraq war was pretty well stopped due to footage of the highway of death. Where is the footage that should stop this war if it's so unjust? I mean they film people in their toilet stalls these days and while doing just about everything else. So what up?

Wow 5cats, so a protestor is a traitor now? so in order to be what, a patriot, you'd have to follow along mindlessly while never expressing your own opinion? oh wait, i guess if you're in the military you aren't allowed to express yourself, i forgot.

Just thought I'd throw that in there, like a live chicken into a cage full of rabid rottweilers."

Lionhart, don't pee in the flamewar, you're just going to get your shoes all nasty.
