This can be considered theropy for my "anger issues"
So read or dont, I still get something out of it
Ok, I couldnt stay way from that topic for one reason...im in the war right now. Not to mention I almost got an assault charge last time I came home from Iraq when someone wanted to tell me I was a pawn guilty of my masters sins...thats a whole other story.
Back to business. WHY ARE WE STILL AT WAR?
Im going to start out by saying that the job is not done. To some who only catch a glimpse into the war once every five months thanks only to the neo-hippy website they subscribe to, which happens to have found the great truth behind the conspiracy, this statement of "job not all the way done" may confuse you. What I mean by this is we have bombed the shit out of enemy strong holds, broken the ranks of most of the terrorist cells (and I say terrorist cells under a loose definition, because that is what they are), gotten a major figurehead and watched him die on television, and turn the Iraqi army into there nations defensive force. But we still have more work to do like getting there form of government more efficent, training there military, police force and a highway patrol. Getting even more markets and bizzares open. Which I have seen a large amounts of them being open in areas they would have never thought to open a store or business before we got here. Not to mention all the small victories we have had all over Iraq, meaning the ones that mattered to a village or a family or a town. But there is still more work to be done.
I am not saying I know why we came over here in the first place(other then the obvious) but I will tell you this, we have more work to do to set up this country; to make sure all the people I saw fall didnt lose there life in vein and to ensure this country is able to hold its self up when we leave (unless McCain gets in, then we'll never leave)[that was not a political endorsment at all, just a random comment]. To those who would say that we have done nothing but bad out here, and there are alot of you, I say go FUCK YOURSELF. I have seen progress from the first time I came to country til now (+3 years) I've seen those people thanking us and wanting nothing more then to just touch a U.S. Marine and say "Thank you"...and maybe have a muffin or two. I've been blessed by people in the street, I've been in fights were Iraqi citizens have given us information about what the insurgents are doing because they hate them too. I've seen market places and bizzares spring up all around Iraq. We are slowly but surely creating a better country for these people and were doing the best we can. If you think it should be done a different way because you have the answer and the people who have been doing this sort of thing longer then you have been alive are so damned wrong, then you have four options
1. SHUT THE FUCK UP!! I DONT GIVE A FLYING RATS ASS WHAT YOU GOT TO SAY
2. Join the armed forces and claw your way up the ranks to a high enough level to where someone might acually listen to your unwashed hippy shit smelling ass. Which you probaly wont do because your to stoned to do much more then eat Doritos and watch some other fucking worthless waste of a human life moran pollute your brain with non-sense and filth that he came up with one night in his parents basement doped out of his mind on ludes and laced pot.
3. Become a politician and once again claw your way through the ranks to a level where you'll be forced to take a shower and drop the joint long enough to pass a law which you never thought you would pass because everything used to look so clear from the bottem. Until you took that elevator to the 85th floor of the "Opened Eyes Enterprise" and you glance out the window at the big picture for 3 enlightening seconds and realize that you were making dicisions with you head shoved up your ass and only allowing one ill-educated source to funnel information to you in the twisted and mangled way that makes them sound correct and not like the failure in life that his mother knows he is!
4. Kill yourself and stop bothering me at the bar with "facts" and other propaganda (im in the military, I get enough propaganda) that you think will impress me or keep a broken Budweiser bottle from being jammed squarly into the side of your neck
If you havent followed the news on Iraq or been there yourself or even talked to people that have been there then dont you dare come after me with facts you just pulled off of Google five seconds ago trying to tell me im wrong. I got a statistic for you: 9 out of every 10 people how fuck with me about this subject and didnt have the right nor knowledge to hold an intellegent non-gorilla warfare style hit and run conversation have ended up broken and beaten, taken away by medical personal.
I of course am not the type to threaten over the internet because I think we can all can agree that that is about a useful and sticking the wrong end of the fork inside your dick.(is there a right side?) So do not think I am threating anyone, Im just making these journal even more interesting to myself and at least one other person. Besides, I have always felt you should say it how you feel it. And I have!!
GOD I LOVE THIS COUNTRY
