Marine Officer In Ramadi Demands A Halt To “Irresponsibly Using This War And The Troops For Political Gain”

BREAKING: Marine Officer In Ramadi Demands A Halt To “Irresponsibly Using This War And The Troops For Political Gain”
“The Surge Is Working”

This email was received just moments ago.

Pat, I met you back in February 2004 at the Government Center in Ar Ramadi, Iraq
as a platoon commander with Golf 2/5. I just read your article in Maxim and the email from the
1/6 Cpl which I found on the Drudgereport. That Cpl is correct in his assessment. I am also back in Ar
Ramadi, and I have a basis for a comparison of the current situation based on
my experiences in this town two years ago as well as today, April 24, 2007. As
you know this war torn city was once the worst city in Iraq. Today, the
citizens of this city are taking a stand against those extremists and foreign
fighters who are focused only on destroying any chance at a secure and stable
future. Those Iraqis who once fought against us are now joining the ranks of
the Iraqi Police forces. They are taking up arms against the foreign fighters.
They are cleaning up their streets and making an attempt at forming a structured
government. They have come to see us as facilitators of peace and allies in the
defense of their streets. Because of this they have become targets for the
insurgents, yet they continue to show resolve in the face of terrorism. We are
gaining ground. This city is undergoing a sea change. To pull stakes now will
cause this city, the Al Anbar Province, and all of Iraq to fall into the hands
of thugs and terrorists. We will lose the nascent but growing faith of the
Iraqi people, and all of our spent efforts and lost lives and invested treasure
will be for nothing. Their courage will be for nothing.
We are reaching a tipping point in this fight. We have finally learned this
culture. We have finally begun to commit the necessary forces. We have truly
learned to fight a counter-insurgency. Very real gains are being made despite
claims from our Congress that we have already lost. A counter-insurgency battle
is not one of quickly attained and easily recognizeable benchmarks. It is not
won in a year or four. It takes time, resolve, and a willingness to use what we
have learned from past mistakes and expectations. From firsthand experience I
can tell you, this “Surge” is working. We need to continue to support these
people and give them a fighting chance at creating a nation on their own terms.

To echo the sentiments of my fellow Marine in 1/6, the reality of what is
happening on the ground in places like Ramadi is not being reported to the
American public. The pundits and politicians on both sides do not fully grasp
the conditions on the ground here. They are arrogantly and irresponsibly using
this war and the troops who fight in it for political gain and election
currency. They manipulate the truth or do not care enough to seek it out. At
least I know where I stand with the citizens of Ar Ramadi.
If you decide to come this way again, find 2/5. There are Marines out here who
will remember you and who will give you their own opinions. I do not speak for
them, but I know that they recognize the change in this place.
Semper Fi,

Over One Million Americans Have Read Corporal Rock’s Email To Traitor Dingey Harry Reid
Stay Tuned For More Reports, Photos & Videos From Our Young Americans Fighting In Ramadi

#1 most emailed story from the NY Post

By GEOFF EARLE, Post Correspondent

April 24, 2007 — WASHINGTON - A tough U.S. Marine stationed in one of the most hostile areas of Iraq has a message for Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid: “We need to stay here and help rebuild.”

In raw and emotional language from the bloody front lines, Cpl. Tyler Rock, of the 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, skewered Reid for being far removed from the patriotism and progress in Iraq.

“Yeah, and I got a quote for that [expletive] Harry Reid. These families need us here,” Rock vented in an e-mail to Pat Dollard, a Hollywood agent-turned-war reporter who posted the comment on his Web site,

“Obviously [Reid] has never been in Iraq. Or at least the area worth seeing . . . the parts where insurgency is rampant and the buildings are blown to pieces,” Rock wrote.

Based in Camp Lejeune, N.C., Rock catalogued a series of grim daily traumas in Iraq, like getting covered in ash and sleeping under a dirty rug in an Iraqi family’s house, or watching “several terrorists die” on the same strip of pavement.

But he says he is optimistic about the future of a country that he says has “turned to complete s- - -” during a bloody insurgency.

He also spoke admiringly of the risks brave Iraqi citizens take every day.

“If Iraq didn’t want us here then why do we have [Iraqi police] volunteering every day to rebuild their cities?” he asked.

“It sucks that Iraqis have more patriotism for a country that has turned to complete s- - - more than the people in America who drink Starbucks every day.

“We could leave this place and say we are sorry to the terrorists. And then we could wait for 3,000 more American civilians to die before we say, ‘Hey, that’s not nice’ again.”

“And the sad thing is after we WIN this war. People like [Reid] will say he was there for us the whole time.”

Rock’s candid e-mail swept across the Internet after Dollard posted it on his site, and it was picked up by the Drudge Report and numerous other Web sites.

“What does [Reid] know about us ‘losing’ besides what he wants to believe? The truth is that we are pushing al Qaeda out and we are pushing the insurgency out. We are here to support a nation.”

Keep it coming Troops!! Semper Fi!!

It's not a matter of "bearing with you" Marie. This letter was wonderful to read and I look forward to reading more of them.

Reid and his cronies are simply trying to relive their so-called glory days and recreate what happened in Vietnam. We must fight them tooth and nail. We cannot afford another Vietnam!

I'm going to link you. I don't know why I didn't do that before.

Blessings! :)

Bush Signs Secure Fence Act

You will have to take it up with the other memebers of Congress as to why some of this bill never got funded.

And yes I blame my own party for some of this before thier defeat this last election.

And I deffinately blame the Congress we have NOW!

But what have the Democrats done to secure the borders since they have been elected (That was one of thier campaign promises) NOTHING!!

What does Ron Paul want to do about the borders and how would he accomplish this with the Democrats in Congress? Hmmmmm?

At least Bush has tried! He deployed the National Guard to the border to free up border security so they could train more border agents, he sent Drones, Money, etc.. He is the ONLY President who has EVER addressed this issue, so dont hand me this nonsense.

What would Ron Paul do I ask again with a Democrat controlled Congress that just believe the "Illegal Aliens" should poor on through the border?

Bush isnt protecting us? I havent seen an attack in this Country since 9-11 and that IS NOT BY ACCIDENT!

Ron Paul cant even protect his cult let alone the United States of America!

"cult"? Barry Goldwater is backing Ron Paul. Barry is an ICON among REAL conservatives.

"What does Ron Paul want to do about the borders"

- Paul not only wants to secure the borders, he wants to eliminate the birthright citizenship and eliminate ALL benefits to illegals. Top that!

Quit trying to shove that Lunatic who want's endless investigations ON OUR DIME to investigate whether President Bush attacked his own Country on 9-11!

You are willing to pay for his needless, stupidity? I thought you were against "wasteful" spending?
