Syrian Government says the rebels are lying. The rebels say the Syrian Government is lying. I believe them both!
7 days a week, 13-18 hrs a day, on and off for three months. Well over 100 deg. EVERY day. It's an "experience"!Have you ever gone to MOPP level 3 or 4 in the desert? Talk about miserable.
When I look at the middle east, it is simply a losing battle.
They hate us, they hate each other, and like a colony of ants they will go after whoever pisses them off the most, which at the moment is us.
I think anyone with half a brain knows if we get involved, and get on the opposite side of Russia on this, World War III, game over for everyone.
I could easily see NK, Iran, Russia, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, China, and half a dozen other no name countries, saying **** you, western powers.
I feel like we have women, children, and elderly to save in our own country. We need to get our own house in order, cause right now Obama
is chiseling away at the foundation with a jackhammer, and we are just teetering now.
I have studied a lot of history, I understand what decisions, and actions led up to where we are now. The best thing we could do is pull out,
and fix ourselves before we bleed out.
B een there done that. I can tell you that civilians don't seem see the humor in it when a few guys wear them and a few other guys wear full Ant C's for halloween costumes......... O6's like it even less when the guilty parties range from E6 to O3, lol.How many of you that wore full MOPP in the dessert had the though that if I have to wear this one more hour I would rather take my chances?
I know I did and so did many of our soldiers.
There was a movie some Marines were playing football with NBC mask on in the dessert, I laugh out loud when I saw that because I seen it done so many times, we did not have a football so we used a MRE. you can drop kick one.
We really need to stay out of Syria it is not our land it is not our fight and they have not come after us yet. If my sons are to do a 5th deployment in that god forsaken part of the world there needs to be a better reason than Obama needs a distraction.
