Fucking Ramadan! My rant...

Fuck this stupid "holiday" and the stupid belief that Allah, or God will bless those whole kill in their name. Screw their belief that there is some holy day, or holy month for that fact, where things they do are magnified 10,000 fold. What kind of religion has a holiday in which they encourage kids to carry around real looking toy guns and the pretend to shoot at Americans. These people are seriously wacked out.

Fuck feeling usless and helpless when right down the road your friends and fellow soldiers are in a fight for, literally their lives, yet theres nothing you can do about it. Sitting around with my thumb up my ass hearing about casualties here and someone killed here, yet continuing to sit on your ass. Why you might ask? Because we are not "needed." Because the battlespace is too crowded with vechicles that belong to huge elements for Majors and other S-Shop working people that have no fucking business being outside the wire, yet alone in a fierce gun battle. I'm sorry you didn't get your CIB in Desert Storm or working in the TOC, but now your risking the lives of people by taking up space when more real soldiers should be out there.

Screw the idea of peace with a group of people that love hate and love to fight. Fuck them for turning against us and taking the perfect opportunity to try to take us out. Screw those that put our guys in a situation like this, and sent them in not fully prepared to deal with what would come. Screw anyone who will sit back after this and not fucking respond swiftly and decisivly. These people are a cancer and they need to be removed. There is no hope for the people of this area; they have proven that time and time again. How long will we continue to sit on our asses and let these sick excuses for human beings exist right under our noses.

ED, this week I'm with you, and you are able to write it much better than I. Take it to 'em and sign my name next to yours. Add AQ in the Afstan mts, and the thugs that are stupid enough to use AQ's name. No call for understanding from me right now.

So frustrating to hear your thoughts echo so many others there and in 'A-stan' Wish that there was someway we could help change this mode of operation, but can't think of a single thing we can do that will change anything in the immediate future. Just Hang in there! When you get the chance, Give em one for me too...

You and all the soldiers are always in my prayers. I am so sorry that things are stressful for you.

Keep your head up, ED. I can't fathom the frustration or absurdity you have to look at and not act on day in and day out. But know that so many of us are so proud of you for doing just that and for having the courage to speak your mind--so very proud.

These people believe in god?
And Allah?
And that there actions during Ramadan will be 10,000 times greater?
Help make their death 10,000 times more meaningful.
There was a saying in Nam.
"Kill em all god will sort em out".
Stay safe.

ED,

I Guess ED stands for erectile dysfunction!!
So you are nothing but a fucking impotent prick who decided to be "macho" by killing others.
Ask yourself this: What are you doing in Iraq? you are nothing but a crasher and should expect hostility not hospitality.
You getting what you deserve.
I wish no death to anyone, niether you nor the Iraqi people.. but your stupidity is down and under.
Fuck Ramadan that's the best you can come up with ...wow you're so brilliant.
