Not Much Happening

Thanksgiving wasn't all that great. It felt just like a normal day to me. Which is weird, but I guess that is how it is when you are not around your loved ones. One things this deployment has taught me is that you can have anything you want, but in the end it's not going to make you happy. The only thing really matters is family. Too bad that old tradition seems to be slowly fading out. The food was ok, wasn't the best, however it was better than most.

Other than that, not much else has been going on. It keeps getting really foggy outside late at night. It is probably a time we should be most vigilant when guarding the perimeter. Poor visibility could aid in an attack.

Today, there was this really big explosion. No really big deal, we hear explosions all the time. All are pretty much just Engineers blowing up weapons caches they collect up. However, this one was especially close and really loud. I ran upstares to check it out, but they said over the radio it was just Engineers. Sometimes these people forget to tell us over radio when they're blowing ordinance.

I read 54 Iraqi paramilitary were killed in northern Iraq today. As bad as it sounds, but I actually like to hear that kind of news. I have no sympathy for those scum. They want us to treat them fairly we take them prisoner. What a joke, are you going to ask a terrorist to be nice to prisoners that they take from us just because we are nice to them? These people are ruthless and I guess you have to actually be here to feel like I do. These people will kill you on the streets so fast and not think twice about it. Some people say they are not evil, but I say they probably never served in a forward position on the war on terror and seen how these people really are. The sad thing is, alot of foreign terrorists or Iraqis attacking are always getting demolished by CPA forces, they just never talk about it. So, back home people think we are getting our asses kicked over here.
