Many people have asked me how I feel about this war, about Iraq, and how I feel about being half way around thwe world. Well I will try to explain it to you all in here. I am proud to be an American fighting here in Iraq. I feel that every one should have to serve there country for atleast two years if they are able to. That way they can appreciate all the freedoms they have. Our mission here in Iraq was to liberate the Iraqi people and take Sadam out of power I feel we did a hell of a job doing that. Mission was complete, Sadam was gone and the people are free but now we face a new enemy, A coward who will not show there face but will rather use cars to blow us up along with any bistanders that are around. I have see that first hand on more than one ocasion. The worst so far was when a car bomb blew up and killed more than a dozen little kids and one of our own Solders, may he rest in peace. I have see the worst that this country can bring but I have also see the best. I have see the happyness we bring to the people of Iraq. I feel we will be in Iraq for a long time because there are still people that do not want Iraq to be free and will do what ever it takes to keep us from doing our job. But as the world will see The United States will not back down or give in to anybody and we are willing and able to go any where that threatens our security or oppresses people in a dectator fashon. And we will win. My view on Iraq is that this was once a beautifull country and can be again. The people of Iraq are hard working people that want and deserve to be free. My feelings on being away from the country I love, Well that is pretty shitty but I signed up to be a Soldier and I know the sacrifices I have to make. I miss my family and friends but I know that they suport me in my decision. In closing I am proud to be an American serving in Iraq and if you are against this war I say to hell with you. You give up all of your freedoms, all your money, security and live under a dectator and I promise you that you would change your mind on this war.
