Quote gommie: Dear kimyla, heart and soul, sheri,shopgirl and lestress-
thank you all for your very kind posts-for myself I get better each day-for which I am extremely grateful- I am really upset about the way my nephew is being railroaded and hope that the mothers,wives,sisters, brothers,aunts,uncles of these men will stand up and fight for them-start some kind of movement in their defense-I have no doubt that the American people will join in- there is just so much talk among ourselves about the injustice that is taking place but that is not good enough to help our boys- we need to let the powers that be know we are behind our boys and they will not be railroaded. I can assure you of one thing..My nephew was not walking around Haditha with $30,000 cash in his pants to 'pay' the victims of this 'war crime' someone much higher up the chain of command was in possession of that kind of cash-so where is this leader and why is the buck stopping with my nephew?
thank you all again very much-good luck with the trials and tribulations of Y & R--I will check chit chat now again...gommie
gommie, do you have an address where we can write to someone about this outrage? Have you contacted Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity on Fox News? They might be sympathetic.
They send young men and women over there and even though it not supposed to be a battleground now that is exactly what it is. They are not able to tell who the enemy is. It can be anyone - man, woman or child. The pressure on the troops has got to be so great - no wonder that some of them break under the strain. And Americans are held to such a high standard of behavior.
