One Step Closer
Great Post from Live in Iraq regarding the readiness of the Iraqi Army to take control of its own ops in Iraq.
“The Iraqi Army has come a long way since last year, when Marines were clearing the insurgents out of Fallujah,” said 1st Lt. Nathan P. Dmochowski, the executive officer for Company E. “They take over more responsibilities as the weeks go by.”
“The group of Iraqi Army we are working with at Camp India are learning very quickly and have no problems taking the lead when we search houses on daily patrols,” Dmochowski stated.Since the Iraqis of 1-4-1 learned most of the basics from the Marines of 3rd Battalion, 8th Marines, tactical integration with the 2nd Marines and II MHG was easier.
With determination on their faces, together the Marines and the Iraqi Army of the 1-4-1 will push forward to stop the insurgents at every turn to create a free Iraq and defeat terrorism.
Take That Sheehan - UH RAH!
Thanks for posting a positive update on the situation on the ground in Iraq. Nice to see something other than the usual anti-American propaganda we're usually fed.
cobb - The ACLU was founded by communists, and is still run by them. They also actively seek to protect child molestors under the guise of privacy.
Don't believe everything your dirty-hippy college professors tell you...
I was going to leave a negative comment on your blog, like you do on mine. But then I saw in your profile that Blazzing Saddles is your favorite movie.
Holy crap, says me to myself, a liberal and a conservative agreeing on something! Amazing.
Then I read your post and realized we can agree on something else. Our fighting men and women are the best in the world.
It's great to see some successes on the ground in Iraq. Unfortunately stories like these are overshadowed by reports of explosions, attacks, insurgency, upheaval, etc. If it bleeds, it leads.
But I digress...
Gabby Johnson: I wash born here, an' I wash raished here, and dad gum it, I am gonna die here, an' no sidewindin', bushwackin', hornswaglin', cracker croaker is gonna rouin' me bishen cutter.
Congrats on being the only lib to leave a positive comment about our troops. I agree with CR, anyone who likes Blazing Saddles can't be all bad.
And CR, thanks to you for posting the good news. Not enough of it gets out in the MSM ... acatually, no good news gets out in the MSM ... what a surprise.
'The Navy Times reports that today that cuts "include trimming military quality-of-life programs, including health care" . . . This, while troops are fighting and dying for our country in Iraq.'
Not to be a downer but lets be real honest about what we're creating over there.
Amazing that these leftie parrots cannot learn a few new lines. That old class warfare rhetoric is getting a bit stale.
And cobb and the "corporations" What is this? South Park?
Is it any wonder that the left can't win an election with looney tunes like that?
I noticed, amidst the speculation that no one was willing to comment on how Bush doesn't see fit to support our troops and their families with the funds they need yet does have enough to give it away to the wealthiest Americans. Compassionate Conservative my A$$.
