I got this story from Kilo's blog, the letter can be found in it's entirety (with pictures) at Pat Dollard's blog here.
Corporal Tyler Rock (a great name for a soldier) rips into Head Senate Donkey Harry Reid, this is the part I want to highlight, as it lets me know that despite what the politicians say, our soldiers believe this war should continue. Warning, this is an unedited version...
“yeah and i got a qoute for that douche harry reid. these families need us here. obviously he has never been in iraq. or atleast the area worth seeing. the parts where insurgency is rampant and the buildings are blown to pieces. we need to stay here and help rebuild. if iraq didnt want us here then why do we have IP’s voluntering everyday to rebuild their cities. and working directly with us too. same with the IA’s. it sucks that iraqi’s have more patriotism for a country that has turned to complete shit more than the people in america who drink starbucks everyday. we could leave this place and say we are sorry to the terrorists. and then we could wait for 3,000 more american civilians to die before we say “hey thats not nice” again. and the sad thing is after we WIN this war. people like him will say he was there for us the whole time.”
A lot of right-on statements in that rant. Cpl. Rock wants to win this war, and believes that it can be done. In fact, the only people who don't believe this war can be won are the politicians and the mass media.
Will someone tell Senator Reid that he has to do some explaining of his words to soldiers like Cpl. Rock? I would love to see a face-to-face meeting between those 2.
