Between 45,000 and 50,000 dead scumbag terrorists, that’s what! That’s the word from this report by a Marine with boots on the ground in Iraq. I found this last paragraph most interesting:
“Morale among our guys is very high. They not only believe that they are winning, but that they are winning decisively. They are stunned and dismayed by what they see in the American press, whom they almost universally view as against them. The embedded reporters are despised and distrusted. They are inflicting casualties at a rate of 20-1 and then see shit like "Are we losing in Iraq" on TV and the print media.”
Damn reporters. General Sherman always said that reporters are worse than spies and that if he had them all shot, there’d be dispatches from Hell in the morning. Too bad we can’t test his theory.
