2010, Defying the President's Orders, and a Soldier killed by Two Iraqi Policemen.

--Rumor has it Obama plans to withdraw all combat troops from Iraq by August 2010. Then it's off to Afghanistan! Sorry troops there's no end in sight...fuck, you probably won't even get a break.

--A Soldier in Iraq says President Obama is an "impostor" and wants to see his birth certificate! First of all, why are you going to defy Obamas orders? Give me a break. But you'll follow the orders of former President George W. Bush? That got us all real far. Easterling said, “I chose to work … to support my troops and then left that lucrative position when the Army raised its maximum enlistment age to 40. Upon completion of basic training, I entered Officer Candidate School and commissioned as a 2LT in August 2007. After completing the subsequent basic officer leadership courses, I was assigned to Ft. Knox and shortly thereafter deployed to Balad, Iraq,"
Dear the Army, 40? Really. That’s to old. No offense to anyone who’s 40 and wants to join…but you might have a heart attack over there. It’s hot and the equipment is heavy. Send care packages instead.
Balad, Iraq? I wonder what orders Easterling is defying? Maybe he's refusing to walk over to pool and jump off the diving board? Oh, or walking to Pizza Hut and getting a pizza? Or maybe he's refusing to sleep in his comfy trailer every night...give me a break. I kind of miss Balad. If anyone should be "defying" orders it should come from those actually doing something over there. Shut up and do your 9-5 job. Give me an infantryman who hasn’t showered in 25 days, whos boots have practically become part of his body, who has seen the depths of war, who has dodged bullets, IEDs, and RPGs…then we’ll talk.

--A U.S. soldier was killed by two Iraqi policemen in Northern Iraq. You train and pay them one day...the next day they kill you. Welcome to a world where nothing makes any sense.

It's just like the ones that said they'd defect to Canada if Bush got a second term. Not that many actually had the nuts to. I do agree with you though. It seems like every REMF thinks that being a FOBBIT makes them somehow qualified to act like that. And I was a REMF who only ran convoys for a few months. People want a fucking cookie for doing what they signed up for. Makes you wonder what the real reason they signed up for was.

Afghanistan's a waste, too. Still hoping Obama wakes up.
