Symbolism in Occupations

(2PM EST – promoted by Nightprowlkitty)

Our symbolic transfer from combat during ‘Nam was when we were sent over no longer as labeled ‘combat’ but as ‘advisors’ once again.

That started just before I left CI/SERE in early 1970 and headed into country, we were given military beanies, i.e. berets, with the operations patch on them and called ‘advisors’, never did meet my supposed ‘counterpart’ the whole year I was there.

Iraq, and leaving Afghanistan once again ignoring our promises to help them rebuild, raised the hatred levels towards us and others, solidifying the propaganda from the extreme minority of radical elements in that region as well as other parts of the world, this won’t be over for at least the coming decades!! Those who set this all in destructive motion have done a great disservice to the world community and the coming generations!!

John Kerry’s 1971 Testimony Against the Vietnam War: “How do you ask a man to be the last man to die in Vietnam? How do you ask a man to be the last man to die for a mistake?”

Operation Iraqi Freedom, bringing ‘freedom? by death and destruction of an innocent country, many excuses given none were truthful, and playing right into the hands of the radical criminal elements words and descriptions, raising and enhancing their numbers and rage.

At least 31,897, as off the end of July 2010 {31,860, as of the end of June 2010} U.S. troops have been wounded in action, according to the Pentagon. No Pentagon updates as to the wounded for August 2010 till the end of the month.

Spc.Faith Renee Hinkley 23 Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA Company C, 502nd Military Intelligence Battalion, 201st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade Died August 7, 2010 in Baghdad, Iraq, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked her unit in Iskandariya, Iraq

Spc.Jamal M. Rhett 24 Palmyra, New Jersey, USA 1st Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division Died of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his vehicle with grenades in Baquba, Diyala province, Iraq, on August 15, 2010

Will Spc. Jamal M/ Rhett 24 be the last to die in Operation Iraqi Freedom, maybe under that hypocritical name as that will last till September 1st 2010 untill the ceremonial turnover on that day to the Iraqi’s. But there will be 50,000 military troops remaining as well as thousands of our huge private mercenary army that this country has built and supports and who’s actions have gotten our soldiers killed and maimed, many have gotten very wealthy off of, under the name “Operation New Dawn”!

For the Iraqi’s, living through the past years and especially the millions of refugee’s, that New Dawn will be not right around the corner, nor on September 1st 2010, but years away!

    August 19, 2010 – “I do hope this memory will also work on the case of Iran. In the case of Iraq, it was a case launched against the eradication of weapons of mass destruction that turns out didn’t exist. In the case of Iran, we are seeing people calling for armed action against alleged intentions.”

    – Hans Martin Blix

    Ambassador Hans Blix, former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, led a team of UN inspectors into Iraq before the 2003 invasion, searching for weapons of mass destruction. They found none, but the invasion went ahead as planned. {read more}
