about this stupid war.

My Dad was in the second world war. My brother was in the Navy and sent down to S. America years ago when there was a conflict. They have both passed on since then. I would love to hear what they would say about all this.

I know what they would say, but I can't print it here.

My husband is a Vietnam veteran, back in the days when Australia was helping America there in the 60s and 70s. I would love to say what he is saying, but it is too crude for you ears, ladies. :bang: :mad: :monkey:

But, hey, think about all the beautiful things we have...:love: :love: :love:

I grew up as an Army brat.....My dad was a veteran of several "conflicts" including Vietman. I lived in Okinawa around this time.

My younger brother, Mike just a few months ago, finished a one year tour....He is Air National Guard, and was reactivated after 9-11. I don't know if he will be reactivated for this or not.

As far as this war..........I really don't know......The world sure is in tourmoil over this whole thing. I pray that it all works out for everbody.

Dealing with Sadam is like dealing with a three year old. If we keep threatening to punish him for not giving up his toys and then dont do anything he is learning he can get a way with what ever he wants. I think we are about 12 years too late. We need to Kick &%^ and I think we are doing a great job. Look at his sholiders that surrendered. the Royal Reblic guys are fat and well maintained. the regular army has not eaten in 6 weeks. That would never happen in our army or any army of a civilized country.

I think our boys are doing great. My old unit is in control of the port and I could not be prouder. and to let those know they knew they were wrong to fly the American Flag and the Marine Flag they just wanted to prove to the people that they were in control and not the Irags like they were proclaiming.
The more you disaprove, the more fun I am having!

Aimee S, you should feel so proud for your old unit! And flying the American flag was symbolic! And donít take any s%$& from anyone for it! It was right.
I am glad to see the terrible regime die, I am also happy that not TOO MANY soldiers died, but I canít help the feeling that I wish there were NONE. I would not want to be the family of the fallen soldiers, God Bless them all! I will pray for themÖ :USA:
