From an Angry Soldier


I’m absolutely speechless . . .

I am SICK of all this bullshit people are writing about the Iraq war. I am abso-fucking -lutely sick to death of it. What the fuck do most of you know about it? You watch it on TV and read the commentaries in the newspaper or Newsweek or whatever god damn yuppie news rag you subscribe to and think you’re all such fucking experts that you can scream at each other like five year old about whether you’re right or not. Let me tell you something: unless you’ve been there, you don’t know a god damn thing about it. It you haven’t been shot at in that fucking hell hole, SHUT THE FUCK UP!

How do I dare say this to you moronic war supporters who are “Supporting our Troops” and waving the flag and all that happy horse shit? I’ll tell you why. I’m a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq. My husband, also a Marine, served several. I left the service six months ago because I got pregnant while he was home on leave and three days ago I get a visit from two men in uniform who hand me a letter and tell me my husband died in that fucking festering sand-pit. He should have been home a month ago but they extended his tour and now he’s coming home in a box.

You fuckers and that god-damn lying sack of shit they call a president are the reason my husband will never see his baby and my kid will never meet his dad.

Support our troops, bring them home NOW!

    From an Angry Soldier

    Marine becomes pregnent while on leave with her Marine husband. He was supposed to be dishcarged a month ago but had his tour extended and a month later he’s killed in action. What do any of us really know about war?


  2. Ron Says :

    Clearly this person does not understand what is at stake in Iraq. Surrendering to the terrorists is not an option. We also cannot let these brave soldiers die for no reason, and therefore we must send more to avenge them.

    /chickenhawk


  3. John Says :

    I can only assume that Ron is joking. Send more? Are you out of your friggin mind? Ron – how about you sign up first. ok?


  4. Steve O Says :

    John, I think Ron is joking. He deploys in a few months if I’m not mistaken. This story just makes me angry as all hell


  5. Craig R. Harmon Says :

    Happily we live in a nation where angry people can emote in the most offensive terms imaginable without the thought police or morality police coming along and censoring it.

    Now if we could just convince angry people that everyone enjoys the right of free speech in this country.

    No. I will not shut the fuck up.

    Thank you America.


  6. Dusty Says :

    The soldier in question served in Iraq. She has now lost her husband over there. And Craig’s only response is that she was offensive and angry?

    Amazing.

    Did you expect her to thank the Bush administrati on for the war and allowing her husband to serve numerous tours over there until his number came up Craig?

    Did you think she speaking out of line? Do you think losing her husband isn’t enough reason to be angry and offensive? Did you actually expect her to be calm and positive?


  7. Craig R. Harmon Says :

    Dusty,

    My response is, I’m an American citizen. America is built upon several foundations… one of which is the right to speak one’s mind and, so, I will continue to speak my mind.

    No I did not expect anything of someone who had just lost a spouse except anger and grief. No I don’t think she is speaking out of line.

    Just declining the invitation to shut the fuck up.


  8. Paul Merda Says :

    Craig may be wrong about the war, but he’s right about free speech…


  9. Ron Says :

    Ron is totally joking. Practicing for when I work up the nads to become a spoof troll. Like a dumbass, I did sign up. And reenlist. Now I’m gonna get stop-lossed. Fit me for my special helmet now.

    SteveO, the new DOD directive for the 15 month deployment has caused my general to ask about a full year’s at-home time for the BCT. So I don’t know when the hell I am going anymore. We are training for an August deployment, but nothing is concrete all of a sudden.

    And Craig, you know I love ya, but citing the First Amendment isn’t going to save you from a punch in the snoot from some angry person you are “exercising your rights” to…


  10. Craig R. Harmon Says :

    Paul,

    Thanks man.

    Ron,

    It wouldn’t be the first punch I’ve taken. Too many have fought and died for my right to speak out. If I have to take a punch or two, it’s a small price to pay.


  11. Jersey McJones Says :

    I agree with Craig. I don’t care which side of the issue you’re on. You have the right to not shut the fuck up – even if you should – in this particular case.

    Ron – very clever – and rather Vonnegut-ish . Good luck, my fine well-helmett ed friend. The “nothing is concrete all of a sudden” thing sounds like a bit of political brinksmanshi p from above, if you know what I mean. If you don’t know what I mean, I will explain, but you may not like the explanation, and I won’t like giving it. But I would for the sake of truth.

    The rest of that woman’s rant was right on.

  12. Liberal Army Wife Says :

    No one, not one of us, gets to say anything to her, except I’m sorry, can I help you in any way, go ahead and yell, scream, rant and throw things. The politics has to go away! None of us understand, unless we have stood there when that door knock came. So Craig, I have to ask you respectfully to allow her to tell you whatever she wants. and not to try to talk to her. I won’t try it either. Don’t be surprised if she decks you if you try.

    Ron, I’m gonna keep hoping your BCT is held over at home.

    LAW


  13. Craig R. Harmon Says :

    LAW,

    As I said, I’m an American; I won’t be shut up.

    On the other hand, I’m a former Pastor so my only personal interaction with her would be supportive, listen to her, nod, express my understandin g and sadness for her loss.

    The thing is, though, this is Bring it On! No one here shies away from expressing their opinion on things, no matter how angry people are over this issue or that. I see no reason to start now.

    To my knowledge, the person in question is not a reader but if she is and she reads my comments, then she gets to unload on me by name what she has already only unloaded on me indirectly. I’m big enough to take it. America: she has her say, I have mine.

    As for decking me, all I can say is what I told Ron:

    It wouldn’t be the first punch I’ve taken. Too many have fought and died for my right to speak out. If I have to take a punch or two, it’s a small price to pay.

    In fact, it’s the least I can do. But I will have my say.


  14. Liberal Army Wife Says :

    Craig – of course you can have your say, that’s what the freedom of speech is, and one of the freedoms her husband swore to support. And I am glad to hear that you would only be supportive to her. We in the military family appreciate that. I cannot imagine her pain. And to feel that his sacrifice was in vain, must be even worse. I hope she realizes that his honourable service was given IN SPITE of the jackass C-in-C we are saddled with.

    I don’t pray, as I don’t have that type of belief system, but I would ask that everyone on BIO take a moment to remember him, and her and that baby.

    LAW


  15. Ron Says :

    “The “nothing is concrete all of a sudden” thing sounds like a bit of political brinksmanshi p from above, if you know what I mean. If you don’t know what I mean, I will explain, but you may not like the explanation, and I won’t like giving it. But I would for the sake of truth.”

    Jersey, actually I am not sure what you mean, go ‘head and elaborate. I’m beyond shock as far as what these clowns can come up with.

    It’s all got to do with that 15 month policy, I think. As soon as that came out, all of our hard dates except for NTC and block leave went kablooie and now they may be talking about a 2008 date, which means I have a very slim chance of ETS before the balloon goes up.


  16. Ron Says :

    Craig, obviously you are mature enough not to be so impolite as to try to tell someone why they are putting their life on the line for something when you will not/cannot. It’s merely a matter of tact and decorum that you probably would gladly shut the fuck up about your opinion were you to speak to her. I think we are beating a dead horse here.

    Meanwhile, nine more families will be getting that knock on the door as I type.


  17. parrotslove Says :

    The marine that lost her husband, I am so truly Sorry for your lost.You are 100% right. People we have terrorise her in the USA as we speak that is plaining there next attack. None of our Military should be in Iraq and afganistan, They should be home. We can take care of them here, We as citizens need to protect our own. Bush Has lied over and over. My husband is in the Army he has be in Iraq 4 Times Now and also in afganistan. He has been Shot, Had his jaw blown out of his face, Military Hosp still doesnt have it fixed right and wont give him teeth to replace what he lost in Iraq, He can barely move his left arm from being shot down in a helicopter where 8 was killed, one lost his arm and dont know how he will hold his baby he never seen. My husband held his best friend in his arms when he died, he held his brother when he died. Those military people are losing there lives, there homes, Wives are losing there husband and there childrens father. My husband they wont let him retire. He wants out. hes been in there 20 yrs now. He hates that War and its all lies. He hates seeing all those young kids been killed. He just returned again to the US today. I look for him to be killed next. You really think our president cares about those that died? NO.. Heres a great Idea, sent Bush His Kids, Chaney and all these politicans kids and family members and all the rich then see how far this war would of gone. i live in fear everyday my husband is gone, that i might be buring him. Dont support this war, stand up for our troops and bring them all home today. My husbands best friend left a wife he treasured and a 6 month old baby boy. He seen his son one time and was killed. We had 58,000 killed in Vietnam , What does it take for people to wake up and say, Bring our Service people Home Safe at Last. We dont want No more of our People killed. We have had Our People Beheaded over there. Burned and cut up in pieces. We need to stand up as Americans and inpeach bush & cheney and take back control of our country. I am building a website to dedicate to our service people, If you have pictures to add send them i will put them up with names & rank. Lady go ahead and cuse yell and scream, I do all the time. I do alot of crying and praying and begging.
