Words from the front-lines (Iraq)

American soldiers sound off about the occupation of Iraq.
"Man, they can't pay me enough to stay here. There's not enough money in the world to make me stay a month longer." - Anonymous Specialist, 4th Infantry Division commenting on the $10,000 three year re-up bonus announced by the Pentagon.

"Wow, 130,000 troops on the ground, nearly 500 deaths and over a billion dollars a day, but they caught a guy living in a hole. Am I supposed to be dazzled?" - Anonymous Army Specialist

"If someone invaded Texas, we'd do the same thing." - Lieutenant Colonel Kim Keslung, 21st Combat Support hospital, Balad, Iraq.
