American Solder in Iraq exposed altering U.S. Military Equp,Against Regulations
Aug 24th,2006 ROLLING STONES reporter Evan Serpick story on
"THE MUSIC Solder's take to Battle " is a expose into the nights in wich certain American Military Persons from different areas of Iraq were hit and some killed by iad's and insurrgents, while listening against Military regs to Music wired into their helments and their Humvees.
SGT Brandon Welsh as stated by the reporters story, has been stripping out head phone and wiring them into the imput jacks of Humvee's at $5 per platoon.
and also wiring the helmets of soldiers with Music as well.
As an anti War Protestor Myself, I felt compelled to contact the Head of Oregons Military and U.S Sen Wydens Office and Smith's and a few other parties to report this misappropriations of U.S. Government Property during War and possible comprimisng American's Locations with the transmissions of this Music while out on Manuvers and conflicts accuring while listening to the Music.
Example, " welsh states,just before the US invasion of Fallujah,Welshs tank struck an hidden explovise,Iraqi insurregents swamed all over them, and while the shit was hitting the Fan,Welsch recalls,
Brittany Spears was belting out "Hit Me Baby one more time", in Welsh's and the other officers helmets "
In anther section of the articule, Welsh admits as a expert tank sound rigger,during his year long tour and charged % dollars per Tank to do so.
Splicing earphones and putting them into the Imput jacks, and humvees without speaks mounted them on the dash instead.
So we got the dingy Broad ,Britany and we got Tupac and Country tunes belting out into the night while on Patrol.!!!
The Rolling Stones reporter meant to really write about the Music, but as a former Militrey Brat myself, with a father whom was an electrical engineer, I saw a total different Pattern emerging the story, which clerly shows, Violations of Military rules of
1) tampering with Government issue humvees and Equipment.
2) Paid government Officer charging other Officers to alter humvees and
3) Violating Military regs by listening to Music while on assignment.
4) Possible comprimising of Positions to the enemy from transmissions
of the altered military body armour and humvees.
5) Un ethical behavior of a soldier during War time in a War zone.
Sgt Brandon Welsh is quoted in the Articule as wiring helmets of solders whom listened to the music he channeled in with a 20 gig ipod ,while in and at Battle (several different locations over a 2 year time period to current)
as well as charging 5 dollars per platoon to wire humvee's with sound rigging for their music to be projected onto the dash thru speakerrs they to have added on against Military regulations as they clear state they dont give a dam about,cause they feel they are going to die,and they want to party all the way to their death !!!
I for one, as a anti-war protester, find this heinous, where are the inspectors,
whom oversee operations....???
I have contacted US Senator Wydens office and Sen.Smith and the head military public Affairs officer in Oregon I could find, because a Jamie Williams from Oregon is interviewed in the articule too!
Their is also a Photo of 2 U.S. Soldiers buying Bootleg Cds off the back of a truck from an Iraq citizen for 3 dollars a POP !!!
I am atragegged to say the least....
Iraqi ripping off American Musicains and Black marketing their stuff, while we are saving their Buts over a WAR FOR OIL !!!!!!!!!!
Would someone help me make sure that this gets plenty of exposure
