    Perhaps this is the start of more troops speaking out against the party of defeat


    HERO REIDS DEM THE RIOT ACT

    April 24, 2007 -- WASHINGTON - A tough U.S. Marine stationed in one of the most hostile areas of Iraq has a message for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid: "We need to stay here and help rebuild."

    In raw and emotional language from the bloody front lines, Cpl. Tyler Rock, of the 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, skewered Reid for being far removed from the patriotism and progress in Iraq.

    "Yeah, and I got a quote for that [expletive] Harry Reid. These families need us here," Rock vented in an e-mail to Pat Dollard, a Hollywood agent-turned-war reporter who posted the comment on his Web site, www.patdollard.com.

    "Obviously [Reid] has never been in Iraq. Or at least the area worth seeing . . . the parts where insurgency is rampant and the buildings are blown to pieces," Rock wrote.

    Stay around rebuild is a grand idea only if the politics would stand aside and allow these troops to achieve the goals.
    Build a usable power grid
    Useable water system
    secure the borders
    and kill al sadr
    and if need be bomb the piss out of areas that harbor terrorist. I know these aren't the greatest answers but it beats the alternative of telling the terrorist what day, hour and moment the allied forces will be retreating that country. The other important area is responsibility of the iraqi people to stand up and defend there country. they know who is a lethal foreign terrorist and who isn't.
    The internal war of religious problems are the iraqis and them alone.

    It will be interesting to see how the Dem supporters react to the troops speaking out against their surrender plan

    I'm from the old School and when I was in we weren't allowed to speak out against the government openly, and if we did, stand by to stand by because you would get into trouble. Today’s military is more liberal and democratic and they forgot they worked for the people and in the oath of office and the oath of enlistenment it clearly spells out you work for the President and all others below the President. I can't say I don't blame the troops for speaking out against members of Congress and Senate for these crazy plans to leave at the most convenient time. I sure don't agree on the troops being hand tied to rules of engagement and what are good targets and other noise that is seeping off the hill

    Perhaps the troops know they have a good chance of winning and they see the Dems wanting handing over Iraq to the terrorists

    The intel might show that and we aren't privvy to that thankfully. I just would like the media and politics to leave the room for about 2 weeks and let our troops whoop some ass. If at that point it clearly ain't working then cut and run. Lets be fair to the cause and IMO we haven't done that yet!

    The troops surge is only around 50% and should the troops win - the Dems would not be happy

    Dems have placed all their money on failure in Iraq

    I guess my confusion here is what is winning? Is it securing the country? Is it ousting those terrorist pukes? Is it both securing and removal of the terrorist puke? Or is it something different?
    For me going after people like al sadr might do 2 things, either stop some of this violence of make more violence. But one thing it would show he got out of control and was taken out.
    I look at places like that slum in sadr city as a breeding ground for terror, get rid of it. Secure Bagdad and secure the borders and that includes all border and quit picking and choosing areas in iraq to work in. I believe that is the pentagon with help of politics that makes that deal go round and round. The country needs to be secured.

    Once the Police, military,and government can stand on their own - we leave

    Even with the attacks and threats, more and more mena and women turn out to sign up

    good theory and that would be the idea. I guess we got lost in this vietnam face saving mission.
    Yes many of the bad peoples killed in iraq so far was a awesome move, but after we got saddam maybe we should have throttled back and used the mission complete statement then I mean we ousted him and that was the goal.
    I'm mixed right now and it is because of the media and politics had those not been so much of the key this whole time I believe I could have digested things better.
