MORE ON FALLUJAH [Rich Lowry]
E-mail:

"Rich,

I am also a professor at a military-related institution, and my little brother is an enlisted Marine (a sniper with 1-3) in Fallujah. This weekend he called for the first time since the battle began. He informed us that a large number of the residents of Fallujah, before fleeing the battle, left blankets and bedding for the Marines and Soldiers along with notes thanking the Americans for liberating their city from the terrorists, as well as invitations to the Marines and Soldiers to sleep in their houses. I've yet to see a report in the media of this. Imagine that.

Additionally, he said their spirits are high, but they would certainly appreciate any "care packages" that folks in the States would care to send their way (preferably consisting of non-perishable food items, candy, deodorant, eye-drops, q-tips, toothpaste, toothbrushes, lip balm, hand/feet warmers, black/dark undershirts, underwear & socks, and non-aerosol bug spray)

It would be great if you could pass this message along to anyone interested in helping out."

This is waaaaay pathetic. Does this mean that the hundreds of millions of dollars we're spending doesn't cover even basic clothing, eyedrops and hygiene items? And what's the deal with the black/dark undershirts?

Too bad they can't drop by the Halliburton Fortress Resort for some R & R.

Blankets. Didn't the US once give native Americans blankets infected with small pox? No need to worry though. Dp has already poisoned the troops.

of course, the blankets were infected with Smallpox virus.
