    Subject: From the Sands of Iraq



    Hello Fellow Americans,

    I am Lcpl. James Phillips, United States Marine Corps, presently serving in Iraq. I'm 22yrs old, and am postponing a degree at Mississippi State University in order to fight this War on Terror. A lady wrote to me recently saying she was unsure who to vote for in the upcoming presidential election, and asked me, as a serviceman in harms way, 1)who did I think would be best for the Country 2)What was the general consensus among our fighting men and women in Iraq and 3) If elected, who would bring us home the quickest.

    Well that got me to thinking, and I thought I would share some thoughts with you all back home and let you know what is going on over here and how the ones getting shot at actually feel about it, as opposed to what you're being fed by the Liberal Media.

    First off, I'd like to say that it's not nearly as so bad over here as what I had expected from watching the news before I came over. I can tell you first hand, that due to our superior technology and training, and most importantly that indomitable spirit that so personifies the American people, we are in solid control over here, we are winning every day, and don't let anyone tell you differently. Our Commander and Chief, President George W. Bush, is a man of conviction and a man who does what he believes in his heart is the best thing for our Country. And while you and I may not agree with his every decision, we have to respect a man who has backbone, and who stands on his own two feet, unwavering in the face of adversity, popular opinion, and political pressure. I can assure you that as a Marine in combat, I am quite confident knowing there is a competent, God-fearing man of courage who decides when and where to send myself and my brothers in arms.

    As to the second question, I have talked to many Marines and servicemen and servicewomen from other branches, and the overwhelming majority, with a few exceptions, want President Bush re-elected.We really believe in what we're fighting for out here. We are taking the fight to the enemies of freedom on their doorstep, such that he is unable to reach us on ours. We're here to help the Iraqi people gain their sovereignty from an oppressor, much like we did in our own war for independence, and I'm honored to be a part of that. And yet, I believe it goes so much deeper than freedom for Iraq. I believe it's a fight for our freedom, for yours and that of your family, and mine, and the family I hope by God's grace to have one day. After all, what is our freedom worth if our neighbors are being massacred on our doorstep and we stand idly by and let it happen?

    Lastly, I'm not sure being brought back the quickest way, is necessarily the best way.

    I was on a machine gun post on our perimeter last night about 2a.m. with my Sgt., and we started discussing this question. Here's what he said " I am so proud to be a part of what we're doing here, and I'm glad I'm here right now. However, I don't want to leave my wife a second time; I want to stay till we get the job done, so I can go home to my wife and we can start a family." Folks, this is the kind of men I'm surrounded by. I trust them on a daily basis with my life, just as they trust me with theirs. We definitely want someone in office who will deploy us appropriately, accomplish the objective, and bring us home. I want to ask you all to pray for our Country, for our leaders and for this upcoming election. Pray that the best man for the job would be elected, regardless of who that may be and then pray that God will give you the wisdom to determine who that is.

    Please send this to anyone who may be helped by it or may simply be interested in seeing it.

    Let Freedom Reign!

    This poor young man has been brainwashed. Bush said the war was over many months ago so why are our services men still dying on a daily basis? I hope you get home alive and well as thousands of your comrades have sacrificed their lives for no good reason.

    Comrade you say, I knew you were a communist, now the proof is seen.

    Johnnie-boy, you know nothing of patriotism, love of country, moral values, the diff between right and wrong, military affairs, military ops, "religion", Christianity, God, the Bible, the church, or most other things you post about.

    You do, however, know a lot about LIBERAL politics. You live it, breathe it, and wallow in it. This means you have a very narrow view of life, and most, if not all, of that view is in the dark.

    I'm letting you know this so you might consider not posting such stupidity. Maybe you should consider putting ALL your posts over in the Jokes section. It would better fit in there.
    You are but another brainwashed righteous right-winger that likes to judge others that have a different view. God, will be my judge not some idiot with extremist right-wing views.
    When did I ever judge you ? i just think you're an idiot.
    Great now we have something in common because I think your the idiot.

    You need to re-read my post, johnnie-boy. Not one word of judgement in there. Your statement just proves either you can't read, you don't read, or you won't read.
    Fact is, God has ALREADY judged you. Not my say so. His say so.
    Sorry, you’re farther out there than I thought you’ve now lost track of what you say.
    I didn’t know you had a direct line to God but I'm still gonna post here all I want. If you don't agree with that you can strike me with a lighting bolt or something.

    Of course you didn't know that. There is this book called the Bible. In that Bible is a book called the Gospel of John. In that Gospel of John are several chapters. In each chapter are several verses. The 3rd chapter, the 18th verse is where I get my info as I posted above. It's really quite simple. Not too difficult to understand...at least for some people.

    Same book the pope reads. Maybe you're not Catholic after all.
