Good For You, Captain
WARNING! Not for the kiddies

Helmet tip to PreVat2

All inter-service rivalries aside, this young Army Officer lays it on the line and says what needs to be said. I wonder if anything was lost in translation... I kinda doubt it.

*sniff* Brings tears to my Eyes...Hoohah!

This is what being an American Soldier is. Straight talk, no BS, kicking ass and taking names. I hope he embarrassed the "men" assembled into actually doing the job.

You sure he's army and an officer? He sounds like a Gunny I met once in Vietnam. Great f&--ing talk he gave those losers.

Wish he'd run for President. Imagine the nomination speech he might give.

Wow!! This speech ranks right up there with the opening speech from "Patton".

Somebody oughtta make him head of the Joint Chiefs, but only if, as the Egyptian says, they TURN HIM LOOSE.

Ad,
I tried not to let inter-service rivalries cloud my judgment, but I swear a Marine Catain wouldn't be needed for an ass-chewin' like that. A good Corporal or Buck Sergeant usually handled situations like this.

Reaming people out like that is Enlisted business, not Officer biz. But that's how we do things in the Corps.

Nonetheless, that young Army Catain gave a first rate ass chewing.

All I got to say (even though it is an Army officer) is hell yeah. "All you have to do is start marching that way (he points in the direction of the resistance front) and you will get in a firefight."

No one even looked, cowards, they know which way it is. The leadership was like why are you calling us out we just give orders and look important!

Priceless!

I wonder when this incident occurred? If the Iraqi police are actually like this Captain accused, we are not accomplishing diddly squat in Irag.

Yeah Bob, I guess all those thousands of people who risked beheading to have a purple inkstain on their fingers prove what a failure Iraq has been, huh?

A god old fashioned ass chewing is fine... but you conveniently forget all the Iraqi cops/troops/innocent civilians who've died fighting al-Qaeda.

Interesting...

Perhaps his daddy was a Marine, A Gunny at that! LOL
