It seems the news knows more about Iraq and the Middle East then we(the guys over here) do. A few weeks ago my wife asked me about a new kind of bomb they(insurgents) were throwing at us. She said they throw them like a hand grenade but she knows what a grenade looks like and these "things" weren't hand grenades. She said they were long like a coke bottle. I told her I had no idea what she was talking about, maybe they were old stick grenades. Then last week in a pre-mission breif we were told the insurgents had a new kind of EFP/IED they threw, they have small parachutes on them. Apparently these new "things" detonate over the gun trucks where the armor is weak. The damn news (and people back home)knew about them weeks before WE did! I told her to watch the news and tell me what our next move is so I'll know what's going on!
By the way, our company lost another good soldier last week...
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.
The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
