Letter from the Front

This is a conversation between a Livejournal member and his buddy (a marine) in Falluja. It gives you a good idea of the thought process some of these guys go through.
This is a link that it being passed around livejournal. I thought that the people of Indymedia might be interested in the mind of a marine, in his own words. The photos are disturbing, I warn you now. Similar photos are making their way into main stream media, and it's nothing that we haven't seen before. Disurbing none the less.

I'm sorry, I don't have time to tranfer the 2 posts, so here are the links:
