    Angry Marines Out To Avenge Blood Of 'executed' Gis

    They have REALLY Fu**ed up now..

    March 25, 2003 -- Reporting from a Marine helicopter base in the Kuwaiti desert

    THE Marines at this chopper base near the Iraqi border are seething with rage and talking revenge over the treatment of American POWs - paraded on TV and some possibly executed.

    "OK, they want to play that way. We can play that way," vowed one enraged pilot.

    Marine after Marine had the same message - many of them warning that there would be "no second chances for those Iraqis now."

    Virtually every conversation here touched on the POW's treatment and possible executions yesterday. It was discussed on chow lines, in the bomb shelters, outside the latrines.

    Robert "Doc" Davenport, a Marine medic trained to both save people and kill them, was among those struggling to digest the appalling news.

    "It makes it harder to do my job," he said, explaining he'll now think twice about dressing the wounds of injured Iraqis.

    "If we run across one of them and he needs my help, it will be harder for me to do it," he added.

    Many Marines on this desert base - affectionately known as "Snakepit" - said they believe they were sent to Iraq not to hurt people, but to free them from Saddam Hussein's ruthless grip.

    "We want to help these people and look what they're doing to us," said more than one shocked Marine.

    "What we should do is go in there and kill every last soul," growled Sgt. Mike Brady.

    "If they realize that we are going to kill them like that, they'll be like 'OK, OK, we surrender,' " said the 28-year-old Texas native.

    Brady, who mans the twin 50-caliber machineguns aboard a Sea Stallion chopper, said he'll be much more wary now when he's flying over Iraqi positions.

    He'll no longer give enemy soldiers the benefit of the doubt when they start waving white flags.

    "I'm going to be a lot quicker to pull that trigger if I think they're up to something," he said.

    During an air raid yesterday - when everyone rushed into the bomb shelters with their gas masks and chemical and biological gear - one Marine's muffled swearing was heard above the din.

    Repeating the sneering nickname used for Saddam Hussein, he kept saying, " 'So damn' insane, 'so damn' insane. I'm going to come up there myself and kill you."

    Of course, not everyone on the base is calling for blood - yet.

    Cpl. Joseph Michinki said he's not convinced the executions actually took place.

    "They can fake all kinds of things with video," noted Michinki, 21, of Georgia.

    "But if that really was Americans being killed, I'd be pretty ****ed," he added.

    Yeah I agree it is Payback time all right. It has really upset me to see those pictures and not be there to help get the revenge that those fallen deserve. God Bless them and their families during this time of mourning.

    It happened before in WW II to the Marines in the pacific.

    They had little interest in takeing prisoners after that.

    Gonna be a tough call in the field. We got to remember there are still bonifide civilians that WANT our support. That's why were there.

    These atrocities have occurred in several wars, WWII, Korea, Vietnam to name a few.
    The fools committing these atrocities best remember.
    Atrocities only beget more atrocities.
    Also the fools firing while waving a flag of surrender.
    Will place more of their men lives in danger.

    Pretense of surrender? Stockpiles of chemical protective gear, and atropine? Execution of Prisoners? Military H.Q. in a hospital with no patients? I say its time to send the reporters to the rear with their cameras and start doing what MARINES do!! So as not to give everyone with a Television Post Traumatic Stress.

    I think the Iraqi's will learn a lesson from our New Testament, "As you sow, so shall you reap." In the vernacular of Vietnam, "Payback is a Mo*********r!!!!"

    digging my grave

    I know I am going to get pummeled for this--

    I am not a Marine nor military, so I can not possibly fathom the anger, hurt, rage, and need for revenge you are experiencing over the soldiers killed and paraded on tv. That is unconscionable. It is dishonorable and cowardice, just plain evil---NONE of which we as Americans are.

    My response is to the comments about seeking revenge on everyone there and the medic saying he would have to think twice about treating an injured Iraqi soldier.

    As Americans, and Marines, you are better than that. I know the need for revenge is strong, but to give in to it--especially as a medic, on surrendered soldiers, or on civilians--you become like them, and then they have won. Yes, I know it is easy to for me to say since I am not there. I can't possibly understand. And you may be right. You have to make the final decision when you are in the situation. But I thought the whole premise was that America was better than that, that we aren't like them.

    You may also come back with it is dishonorable not to avenge the deaths of the fallen and to fight back on the behalf of the POWs. Yes, seek your revenge on the Battlefield.

    To treat POWs the way they have, show them on tv, use civilians as shields, and parade around in uniforms like ours and execute their own people is terroristic and cowardice. They have shown they have no honor, don't let them take yours away from you.

    Sorry, I know I have really p***ed alot off here, so let the barage of messages begin.

    I do support you all though. God Bless you and SEMPER FI

    you know,, I think the soldiers in Camp Pennsylvanis showed great restraint and showed truly how disciplined they are, when they were able to apprehend and guard the soldier who threw the grenades,, I'm sure the first gut reaction would have been to shoot him.......... but they arose above it,,,, God Bless them and all our troops
