Desert Storm - October 3, 2007 12:51 AM (GMT)
I've been part of the movement for a couple years now. I've browsed these forums for a while and decided to create an account.

welcome, from MN
Just a guess - were you in "Desert Storm", as in the Gulf war part I? If so, do you have inside info - what we're probably not hearing from over there?

No. I am only 24. I served 2 years in the AF. I earned the nickname Desert Storm at my work because I always wear my desert camouflaged pants.

The only inside info I have is that the US military is a huge money pit. Oh and our current servicemen and women are not worthy of support or respect.

EDIT: Except for Johny Wave. He's a badass.

I'd say, count your blessings, if you missed part I of our 2-part (& counting) war.

Any group of 160,000 ppl - military or otherwise - is going to have thousands of all types. It's common to hear of the good and the bad, as you would of any city that size.

Still, you have a unique perspective on the service, and on the Middle East, which relatively few ppl have. I for one would love to hear your insights on those topics - and whatever else you bring to the table.

Desert Storm,

Welcome, but be mindful of what you say about our Service men and women.

I'm mindful of everything I say.

Every man and woman in uniform who swore to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies" has failed. Failure doesn't warrant respect. I guess technically everyone who pays federal taxes supports the troops financially. But thats about where my support for them ends.

If our servicemen had any true honor, they would take their government-issued weapons, and reclaim Washington on behalf of the people.

blah, blah, blah load of crap.

Then as a fellow service member you should know that we do not dictate or make policy so dont give me that crap. We are all volunteers and you know that. Trust me we all want peace, but we dont control what group decides to attack and hate us.

Yo DevilDogs...ease up..Dude.

Welcome Desert Storm and I agree with you 100% if there is a will there is a way, we just need to help them out.

A couple of nights ago I heard Bush call our military GI's, don't know about you all, but that went out awhile ago, and for him to say what he did that's just wrong. He is taking us back to Vietnam again. I just have this to say WTF Bush.

Yes, it is a volunteer military, but if you signed up a couple of months after 911, due to anger, revenge or payback and now have found out that this WAR is wrong, then Our Military should release you from duty. I agree with Desert Storm, we need to educate our young so that when the recruiter's show up at their school's they are able to say F**K NO, I won't GO.
NO PERSONAL ATTACKS---THIS IS A FORUM TO DEBATE THE ISSUES----AGREED!
CAN YOU ROGER THAT, DEVILDOGS!

You are so correct...this is a stupid war brought to you by the bush. He will go down in history as the most Atrocious Person to hold a public office with his other Cronies, some have already jumped ship, says' alot.

Bye Bye Miss American Pie....this song has so many meaning, like removing our rose color glasses and seeing what we have become.
