Now these bastards are sending out press releases...

Jonathan...thanks for the heads up...I wish it were better news.

God get us out of Afghanistan....PLEASE.

I wish someone could explain to me the strategic reasoning behind continuing the fight in a country thats involved in a civil war, that desires to remain stuck in the 18th century, that has fewer than 100 AQ terrorist in it and one in which we are in essence nation building.

Rant over. Here's the news we all dread.

Five NATO Servicemen Killed in Afghan IED Attack

ABC News(KABUL, Afghanistan) -- Five American servicemembers of NATO's International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) were killed in southern Afghanistan Thursday.

According to the ISAF, the troops died after they were attacked by an improvised explosive device, or IED.  A defense official says Americans were among the casualties.
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack, sending a text message to the media.  They said two American Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, or MRAPs, were targeted in the Marja and Gereshk districts of Helmand province.

The servicemembers have not yet been identified.
These service men are more than likely Marines.  Helmand Province falls under Task Force Leatherneck control.

Replay. Warrior Song.

Always loved the video but wondered about the words...below are the lyrics....have a good Friday.

I am a Marine on the beach, I’m a killin’ machine, with a need to bleed you when the light goes green, best believe, I’m in a zone to be, from my Yin to my Yang Tze. Put a grin on my chin, come to me, cuz I’ll win, I’m one-of-a-kind and I’ll bring death to place you’re about to be: another river of blood runnin’ under my feet. Forged in fire lit long ago, stand next to me, you’ll never stand alone. I’m last to leave, but the first to go, Hard Corps is the only way I know. I feedon the fear of the devil inside of the enemy faces in my sights; aim with the hand, shoot with the mind, kill with a heart like arctic ice.

I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song

I bask in the glow of the rising war, lay waste to the ground of an enemy shore, wade through the blood spilled on the floor, and if another one stands I’ll kill some more. Bullet in the breach and fire in me, like a cigarette thrown to gasoline, if death don’t bring you fear then death ain’t brought by no Marine. Come to the nightmare, come to me, deep down in the dark where the devil be, in the maw with the jaws and the razor teeth, where the brimstone burns and the angel weeps. Call to the dogs if Icross your path and my silhouette hangs like a body bag; hope is a moment now long past, the shadow of death is one I cast.

I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song

Hell has no demon I won’t overcome, I am a warrior and this is my song

Now I live lean and I mean to inflict the grief, and the least of me’s still of your reach. The killing machine’s gonna do the deed, intil the river runs dry and my last breath leaves. Chin in the air with a head held high, I’ll stand in the path of the enemy line. Feel no fear, know my pride: for God and Country I’ll end your life.

I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song

Hell has no demon I won’t overcome, I am a warrior and this is my song
I made the devil himself turn and run, I am a warrior and this is my song
Into the fire I will keep marchin’ on. Oorah. Marine Corps. Get Some…
Good night Chesty...wherever you are...
