Scorpions, Chiggers & Sand Fleas, oh my!
From a Recon Marine in Afghanistan:
From the Sand Pit
It's freezing here. I'm sitting on hard cold dirt between rocks and
shrubs at the base of the Hindu Kush Mountains, along the Dar'yoi
Pamir River, watching a hole that leads to a tunnel that leads to a
cave. Stake out, my friend, and no pizza delivery for thousands of
I also glance at the area around my *** every ten to fifteen seconds
to avoid another scorpion sting. I've actually given up battling the
chiggers and sand fleas, but the scorpions give a jolt like a cattle
prod. Hurts like a bastard. The antidote tastes like transmission
fluid, but God bless the Marine Corps for the five vials of it in my
pack. The one truth the Taliban cannot escape is that, believe it or
not, they are human beings, which means they have to eat food and
drink water. That requires couriers and that's where an old bounty
hunter like me comes in handy.
I track the couriers, locate the tunnel entrances and storage
facilities, type the info into the hand held, and shoot the
coordinates up to the satellite link that tells the air commanders
where to drop the hardware. We bash some heads for a while, and then
I track and record the new movement. It's all about intelligence. We
haven't even brought in the snipers yet. These scurrying rats have no
idea what they're in for. We are but days away from cutting off
supply lines and allowing the eradication to begin. But you know me;
I'm a romantic. I've said it before and I'll say it again: This
country blows, man. It's not even a country. There are no roads,
there's no infrastructure, there's no government.
This is an inhospitable, rock-pit ****-hole ruled by eleventh century
warring tribes. There are no jobs here like we know jobs.
Afghanistan offers only two ways for a man to support his family, join
the opium trade or join the army. That's it. Those are your options.
Oh, I forgot, you can also live in a refugee camp and eat
plum-sweetened, crushed beetle paste and squirt mud like a goose with
stomach flu, if that's your idea of a party. But the smell alone of
those 'tent cities of the walking dead' is enough to hurl you into the
poppy fields to cheerfully scrape bulbs for eighteen hours a day.
I've been living with these Tajiks and Uzbeks, and Turkmen and even a
couple of Pashtu's, for over a month-and-a-half now, and this much I
can say for sure: These guys, are Huns, actual, living Huns. They
LIVE to fight. It's what they do. It's ALL they do. They have no
respect for anything; not for themselves, their families, or for each
other. They claw at one another as a way of life. They play polo
with dead calves and force their five-year-old sons into human
cockfights to defend the family honor. Just Huns, roaming packs of
savage, heartless beasts who feed on each other's barbarism. Cavemen
with AK-47's. Then again, maybe I'm just a cranky young bastard.
I'm freezing my *** off on this stupid hill because my lap warmer is
running out of juice, and I can't recharge it until the sun comes up
in a few hours. Oh yeah! You like to write letters, right? Do me a
favor, Bizarre. Write a letter to CNN and tell Wolf and Anderson and
that awful, sneering, pompous Aaron Brown to stop calling the Taliban
"smart". They are not smart. I suggest CNN invest in a dictionary
because the word they are looking for is "cunning". The Taliban are
cunning, like jackals, hyenas, and wolverines. They are sneaky and
ruthless, and when confronted, they are cowardly. They are hateful,
malevolent parasites who create nothing and destroy everything else.
Smart? Bullshit! Yeah, they're real smart, Most can’t read, but
they've spent their entire lives listening to Imams telling them about
only one book (and not a very good one, as books go). They consider
hygiene and indoor plumbing to be products of the devil. They're
still trying to figuring out how to work a Bic lighter. Talking to a
Taliban warrior about improving his quality of life is like trying to
teach an ape how to hold a pen. Eventually he gets frustrated and
sticks you in the eye with it. OK, enough. Snuffle will be up
soon, so I have to get back to my hole. Covering my tracks in the
snow takes a lot of practice, but I'm good at it.
Please, I tell you and my fellow Americans to turn off the TV sets and
move on with your lives. The story line you are getting from CNN,
ABC, CBS, NBC and other liberal news agencies is utter bullshit and
designed not to deliver truth but rather to keep you glued to the
screen so you will watch the next commercial. We've got this one
under control. The worst thing you guys can do right now is sit
around analyzing what we're doing over here. You have no idea what
we're doing, and you really don't want to know. We are your military,
and we are only doing what you sent us here to do.
From a Jack Recon Marine in Afghanistan, Semper Fi.
"Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps is paying most of your share".
Send this to YOUR FRIENDS so that people there will really know what
is going on over here.
God Bless America.
PS Why would any civilized country want to bring these barbarians
into their cities or states. To do so is total suicidal insanity!
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
