From an Angry Soldier

I¹m having the worst damn week of my whole damn life so I¹m going to write this 
while I¹m pissed off enough to do it right.

I am SICK of all this bullshit people are writing about the Iraq war. I am 
abso-fucking-lutely sick to death of it. What the fuck do most of you know about
it? You watch it on TV and read the commentaries in the newspaper or Newsweek or
whatever god damn yuppie news rag you subscribe to and think you¹re all such 
fucking experts that you can scream at each other like five year old about 
whether you¹re right or not. Let me tell you something: unless you¹ve been 
there, you don¹t know a god damn thing about it. It you haven¹t been shot at in 
that fucking hell hole, SHUT THE FUCK UP!

How do I dare say this to you moronic war supporters who are "Supporting our 
Troops" and waving the flag and all that happy horse shit? I¹ll tell you why. 
I¹m a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq. My husband, also a Marine, served 
several. I left the service six months ago because I got pregnant while he was 
home on leave and three days ago I get a visit from two men in uniform who hand 
me a letter and tell me my husband died in that fucking festering sand-pit. He 
should have been home a month ago but they extended his tour and now he¹s coming
home in a box.

You fuckers and that god-damn lying sack of shit they call a president are the 
reason my husband will never see his baby and my kid will never meet his dad.

And you know what the most fucked up thing about this Iraq shit is? They don¹t 
want us there. They¹re not happy we came and they want us out NOW. We fucked up 
their lives even worse than they already were and they¹re pissed off. We didn¹t 
help them and we¹re not helping them now. That¹s what our soldiers are dying 

Oh while I¹m good and worked up, the government doesn¹t even have the decency to
help out the soldiers whos lives they ruined. If you really believe the military
and the government had no idea the veterans¹ hospitals were so fucked up, you 
are a god-damn retard. They don¹t care about us. We¹re disposable. We¹re numbers
on a page and they¹d rather forget we exist so they don¹t have to be reminded 
about the families and lives they ruined while they¹re sipping their cocktails 
at another fund raiser dinner. If they were really concerned about supporting 
the troops, they¹d bring them home so their families wouldn¹t have to cry at a 
graveside and explain to their children why mommy or daddy isn¹t coming home. 
Because you can¹t explain it. We¹re not fighting for our country, we¹re not 
fighting for the good of Iraq¹s people, we¹re fighting for Bush¹s personal 
agenda. Patriotism my ass. You know what? My dad served in Vietnam and NOTHING 

So I¹m pissed. I¹m beyond pissed. And I¹m going to go to my husband funeral and 
recieve that flag and hang it up on the wall for my baby to see when he¹s older.
But I¹m not going to tell him that his father died for the stupidty of the 
American government. I¹m going to tell him that his father was a hero and the 
best man I ever met and that he loved his country enough to die for it, because 
that¹s all true and nothing will be solved by telling my son that his father was
sent to die by people who didn¹t care about him at all.

Fuck you, war supporters, George W. Bush, and all the god damn mother fuckers 
who made the war possible. I hope you burn in hell.
