Message Posted by GooseSix Do you have any amount of respect in your pathetic body?
I didn't see anything disrespectful in his question. I am a veteran of the first Gulf War and I don't think asking questions like that is disrespectful. Now granted, I didn't see action over there like the guys of today. Lake started the conversation about how his friend was KIA and the video even showed some bloody scenes from the attack. Dolla just wanted to know the real version opposed to the media version.
Dolla, as for your question about the Iraqi soldiers. I can tell you in the first Gulf War, I worked an EPW camp (POW). These guys were pretty respectful and courteous. You have to remember though, in the first Gulf War they were dug in for months waiting for US to invade. We simply bombed the frick out of the for a month, making the ground invasion a push over. They were surrendering to anyone, including a CNN news crew.
