#1 I am always moved by these stories. To my dying day I will always regret not joining the Marines.

#2 I gather that the ambushes, which require complicity of at least hundreds of civilians, occur in only a couple of Iraqi cities. Perhaps new rules of engagement need to be pursued in Saddam-friendly sections. I am aware of some retaliation inflicted on farmers who allowed terror operations against pipelines, to take place on their properties. Sow the wind, weep the whirlwind.

#3 This is rather dated. The Marines were out of Iraq last month.

#4 Showing respect costs nothing -- neither pain nor cash -- but can earn a great deal. That lieutenant deserves a great big attaboy for the idea.

#5 RC - agreed and I, like Ray, regret not joining the Marines. I bet I would've matured (or died heh heh) a lot earlier, and got my life in forward gear with their assistance.
