Marines and sailor charged
with murder an outrage

Seven Marines and a sailor have been charged with murder in the
April death of an Iraqi civilian, this is outrage. We call upon
our nation warriors to fight the enemy in foreign lands, and
often the enemy is a man dressed in civilian attire equipped
with the standard Russian AK-47 and when latching out to fight,
and kill our soldiers in harm's way. The local inhabitants cry
murder when they engaged the highly professional skilled Marine
who is programmed to do his job, However when the enemy cries
they are playing unfair.
The Marines after many hours
of intense training defend our nation's values, and answer to
call of our President (The over-all commander in chief). The
Marine has a game to play like the one in Vietnam. Try to stay
alive, and when they kill your friend in an ambush, and plant
booby-traps everywhere, excuse me! An IUD has blown up half the
squad or section. The Politician is deciding the rules engagement
for war. Deciding the fighting soldier is to play fair or pretend,
to respond in a friendly manner, in a highly intense combat situation.
Give me a break! If you do want, our soldiers and sailors ordered
to kill in combat! Then what in god's name are our nation's warriors
doing in harm's way in a country that would like to kill every
infidel, or westerner, that sets foot on the soil of Iraq, and
Afghanistan. Who are we kidding?
Is this game of life or death,
the few and proud are willing to give their lives for our Country.
Our justice system may have the seven Marines, and a sailor
face the death penalty afterwards. This country is sending our
young people mixed messages. "You're dammed if you do, or
dam,ed if you do not!" The military slogan should state:
"Come join the fight against terrorists and play a game
of catch 22! Do and die! Moreover, we will call you a liar, and
killer. If you are not killed by a man with an AK-47 or roadside
bomb, you will have no limbs, come home, and live it over, and
over again! If you pull the trigger to kill a civilian equipped
with an AK-47 moments, before trying to end your life, you will
be sent home to face the death penalty. Do or die! Play, and
pay with your life.
From a Native American Veteran
who served Please do not punish the brave. Embrace our nations
few the Marines & Sailors, and our Army soldiers, and Airman,
National Guard, Coast guard. So many have already given their
lives. Find it in our hearts on behalf of the Nation to give
freedom to them. For they have given us freedom. The war is not
a popular war, however what war has ever been! Do not ignore
what is taking place in Camp Pendleton USMC base. America please
Help those Young Men and Women who serve.

PS: To the brave.
Few years ago, watching the news on T.V the twin towers unfolded,
before my eyes. Black smoke filled the New York sky, and many
running for their lives. We the people raised their right hands,
yes! Those young Marines sitting behind bars facing death once
again. Here I stand in dismay, holding my nation's flag given
to my father who served before me with tears dropping on my mother's
floor. I look at his picture placed next to my grandfather's
picture. My grandfather served many years before. My nation is
once again calling, but the recruiter told me I was too old.
I served in a time of peace; however, my heart is demanding to
serve again. Maybe, I could help the Vets when they return home.
Some will come home to no family and friends; some will come
home without their limbs. The brave, who had cheated death, only
to face a life, of learning to move again. Sadness, and depression
will follow please extend your hand to help them.
About: Ash Gee'd writes... "Born and raised in the state
of Alaska. I Graduate from Annette Island Jr-Sr high in May 1980.
A few years ago, I decided to attend college. Middle aged, and
still had the desire to learn I managed to earn the Bachelor
of Science in Technical Management degree (BSTM) June of 2005.
My name is Ash-Geed from the Tshimsean nation. If you can- not
pronounce it, I will not take offense. I am former Marine and
I served during a time of peace from 1981-1985. "The Marines,
conducted a rescue mission on the Island of Grenada in October
of 1983, and was on a so called peace mission in Lebanon. Their
assignment was to guard the Beirut International Airport. A truck
and the suicide driver crashed and broke though the entrance,
a young Marine equipped with an M-16, and six rounds, no hand
grenades or antitank rockets (the standard MO for a Marine guard
back then!)- confused by the rules of engagement tried to stop
the truck. The improvised Truck had been fortified with armor.
It broke though, and killed 300 Marines and few Sailors. If you
may, allow my opinion about the seven Marines, and Sailor facing
murder charges. I would like to take time and thank you for your
undivided attention Sit-news.
