4. Sad to say, he no doubt will get them.
Another loaded helicopter, a transport landing at Baghdad airport, a rocket in the middle of a crowded mess tent.

It's bound to happen.

5. Marine from my area was killed this week. On the local news
his family spoke about how proud they were of him and how happy he was to be serving his country and protecting Amerika from terrorist in Iraq. As long as the sheeple believe this line of thinking the chimp will never have a shortage of cannon fodder. Sad.
