Before you post this as fact, you might want to investigate some of it, as it is rife with half-truths, and some outright lies.
So, are you say'n that all news printed in the papers
or editorials are 100% factual.

NO.

Just copied & pasted some ones opinion that is over there doing the time.

Then please state it as such. There are lots of hard numbers and data in the "letter", and it makes it seem like fact.

That’s all it is, is an opinion. You know what they say about that.
Some thing along the lines of assholes.

It's a lot easier to state other peoples' opinions than back up your own with facts, isn't it?

Did you not read the subject line?

Does the article not state where it’s from?

If you believe that everything on this OFF TOPIC page
is indeed facts, then there is nothing I can say or do to change you're opinion.

Never stated anything about it was factual.

Since you offered no qualifications regarding your postings, what was your intention? Why would you post something like that if you believed it was full of fabrications? My response to it is simple: shoot it down like a lazy clay pigeon.

My opinion is flexible, given facts to reform it.

I had no intentions, but to start a topic.
Maybe some one other than you, might enjoy an
opinion from one of the men over there with boots
on the ground, doing the time.
If you dispute the letters then it is you're job to factually point out the so called fabrications.

Man this forum is like twisting a pig’s ear.

I agree -- it's a tough crowd sometimes. I've seen lots of folks mistakenly post urban legend or false email content. Disqualify the source and move on to address other material in the thread. We all make honest mistakes.

Marines in Iraq say War is a stupid waste

Mr. guag, I would hope you read this article. These Marines are saying the EXACT SAME THING I have been saying to you on this forum. Looks like the Marine Corp is going "liberal" on you:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6214573/

Try not to choke on these words:

"The reality right now is that the most dangerous opinion in the world is the opinion of a U.S. serviceman," said Lance Cpl. Devin Kelly, 20, of Fairbanks, Alaska.

Lance Cpl. Alexander Jones, 20, of Ball Ground, Ga., agreed: "We're basically proving out that the government is wrong," he said. "We're catching them in a lie."


This war is an UTTER STUPID WASTE.

I got your quagmire right here.

Looks like some former insurgents are joining the establishment. Must be awfully dissappointing to folks who pine for the demonstrations of yore, when one could spit on a soldier and feel good about it.


Weapons handover begins in Sadr City
Monday, October 11, 2004 Posted: 12:51 PM EDT (1651 GMT)

Rumsfeld visits troops in Iraq.

Samarra recovers from operation against insurgents.


BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraqis aligned with Medhi militia started trickling into police stations in Baghdad on Monday to exchange their weapons for coupons they can later use to get cash from the Iraqi government.

Rebels were expected to surrender thousands of medium and heavy weapons at various centers in the Sadr City area of the city under the control of police, the National Guard and City Council officials during a five-day amnesty, officials in Iraq's interim government said Monday.

Observers said the surrendering of rocket-propelled grenade launchers, mortars and machine guns was a sign an agreement between radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and the Iraqi government was being implemented as announced.

Iraqi Police Col. Fawzi Mahmoud said the weapons began arriving at 8 a.m. Monday at the al-Habibia police station on the outskirts of Sadr City.

"Until now, we have received a good number of weapons and Mehdi militia is still coming to this center to turn over its weapons," Mahmoud said.

"The city is very quiet and the people have been very cooperative with the Iraqi police," he said.
