  • Iraqi Thank you note...

    Hey Wait, this is actually Good News!

    Here is an excerpt of a thank you note written to the US troops from the Mayor of Tall 'Afar, Ninewa, Iraq...

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,185000,00.html

    Our city was the main base of operations for Abu Mousab Al Zarqawi. The city was completely held hostage in the hands of his henchmen. Our schools, governmental services, businesses and offices were closed. Our streets were silent, and no one dared to walk them. Our people were barricaded in their homes out of fear; death awaited them around every corner. Terrorists occupied and controlled the only hospital in the city. Their savagery reached such a level that they stuffed the corpses of children with explosives and tossed them into the streets in order to kill grieving parents attempting to retrieve the bodies of their young. This was the situation of our city until God prepared and delivered unto them the courageous soldiers of the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment, who liberated this city, ridding it of Zarqawi's followers after harsh fighting, killing many terrorists, and forcing the remaining butchers to flee the city like rats to the surrounding areas, where the bravery of other 3d ACR soldiers in Sinjar, Rabiah, Zuma and Avgani finally destroyed them.

    Is the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment like the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment except with cool special effects?

        +rep Lucky. Awesome post.

        But I do have a question.

        Is the 3rd ACD the same as the 3rd Armored Division (Spearhead)?

        The reason I ask is because after the first Gulf war Spearhead was shut-down. But they have been known to get shut down and then reactivated for a new conflict.

          Different units. 3d AD was in Germany and was downsizing towards deactivation when the first Gulf War started. They were deactivated in 92.

          3rd ACR is in Fort Carson and has their own long, distinguished history.

          3AD. 3rd ACR.

          This is the best paragraph of the letter:
          God bless this brave Regiment; God bless the families who dedicated these brave men and women. From the bottom of our hearts we thank the families. They have given us something we will never forget. To the families of those who have given their holy blood for our land, we all bow to you in reverence and to the souls of your loved ones. Their sacrifice was not in vain. They are not dead, but alive, and their souls hovering around us every second of every minute. They will never be forgotten for giving their precious lives. They have sacrificed that which is most valuable. We see them in the smile of every child, and inevery flower growing in this land. Let America, their families, and the world be proud of their sacrifice for humanity and life.
          There are some people in my state that need to read it.

              Thanks, I was confused when I saw that and was thinking to myself that they had been deactivated after the first Gulf War.

              That letter definitely sheds a different light on the Iraqis and is very touching.

                Well, even if that was the case, you can find people who like ANYTHING. Remember, during the Revolutionary War, lots of people didn't want to break away from the British. Then in the Civil War, half the freaking country supported the Confederates. And Hitler was very popular with Winston Churchill until the shooting started.

                  I think you should give credit where it is due. A lot of our troops are doing very good work over there, even if the overall political strategy is stumbling.

                        A poll was taken i Iraq and it showed that there were some that agreed with Bush's "messianic vision" to bring democracy to Iraq, namely 1 % and the rest about 85% said that The war was stared to get access to Iraqi's oil.
                        A leaked poll in UK showed that 82 % were "against the presence of coalition troops", 70 % "have no confidence in the coalition troops" and 1 % think that they are improving security[1] So if the US government cares about Iraq democracy why do they opposite the overwhelmingly majority of the people, in fact the people of Iraq had massive non violent demonstrations and forced the invaders to held Elections, every candidate had to say that they wanted the invaders to leave (even the US supported one) but at once the US said that they would not withdraw, undermining Iraqi democracy. The occupation is a brutal act, and violates international law[2] and over 100 000 people have been killed[3]
                        The facts are very clear, if the us support democracy, why did they support the coup in Venezuela in April 11. 2002?[4] if they respect human rights why do they commit torture, close down or ban tv channels(even bomb). My conclusion is that the US is an outlaw state that does not follow international law, their acts has increased the threat of terrorism(as predicted by CIA, tt, UK parliament etc)Its nothing new, the international court of justice found the US guilty in "the crime of aggression" and " found that the United States had violated international law by supporting Contra guerrillas in their war against the Nicaraguan government"[5] The Nicaraguan government made 2 UN resolution, calling all the members to obey international law, the us vetoed them[6]

                        Remember that the occupation has ended 2 brutal regimes. nr1 is Saddam Hussein nr 2 is the us\uk sanction regime that killed about 500 000 children under 5years[7] Remember that the US supported the dictator when the bloody Halabja massacres occurred, even increased the support. There has been elections that are not fully democratic but there are progress being made. Does this legitimate the crime of aggression? Of course not, thats like saying that the imperial japan should have invaded several Asian countries, it had some benifital effects, it drove some of the western powers out, and led finally to independence, but they had to fight the imperial japan to get it, its the same situation with Iraq. The people had to fight for democracy against the US governments will and fight to have influence on political decisions, same in Asia(however this was a world war and other countries had more decisive influence) they had to fight against the imperial Japan for independence

                            fighter -

                            When people talk about supporting 'democracy' around the world, they don't exactly mean that they want to support 'people voting for their governments.' The vote is a crucial and irreplaceable part of democracy, but is not the whole story.

                            Equally vital components to 'modern democracy' or more precisely 'liberal democracy' are the rule of law, protection for minorities, and the protection of certain freedoms - including free markets. This (partly) explains why the USA will not support people such as Chavez even if they are 'elected' into office; Chavez was then and remains now clearly opposed to some freedoms which are crucial to liberal democracy.

                            I should also add that I haven't seen or heard of any evidence or purported evidence that the USA organized the coup against Chavez.
