Lance,

18 years and 15 UN resolutions didn't get Saddam to straighten out, and sometimes the universal langauges of "pain" and "force" are the only things some understand.

There are several other countries that could have taken up the mantle, but didn't or won't. Sometimes taking the high road and doing whats right isn't popular, but it has to be done.

We used to have a burn clinic here at the FOB that I've been at for the past 23 months. It was the only thing close to a hospital for over 180km. Seeing children in shock from 2nd and 3rd degree burns will be something that will haunt me for quite a while, and all I do here is make sure these folks get their e-mail.

Not to revive this one from the dead...

...I was stationed on Camp Victory in VBC in 2009-2010. I served (and will continue to do so until 2016) with the Oregon National Guard's 41st IBCT. I previously served on the active side with the 3/7th IN out of Ft. Stewart Georgia (1992-1995).

Lots of pics and some neat video from my year in Iraq.

I now serve with 2/218th FA.

Interesting times we live in...truly intriguing.
