#1 Clooney is a twit. If his aunt weren't Rosemary Clooney, he would be just another Kentucky gigilo.

#5 Mr. Clooney is lovely on the outside. And matches the stereotype, poor thing, without the wherewithal to notice it.

#7 "O Brother Where Art Thou" was the only film of his I thought he did a real solid job on. Other then that this dude really bores me. Clooney giving geo-political advice to the Bush Admin is like me trying to tell Martha Stewart how to make a holiday desert or explaining to Bret Favre what a first down is....can't make chicken salad out of chicken shit Mr. Clooney....

#8 BTW, BH6... how are things going over there now?

#9 BH6---Oh Brother Where Art Thou? is one of my favorite movies.

When the fellows were holed up in the barn with the lawmen pumping .45s into it and setting it on fire, Clooney kept saying, "Damn! We're in a tight spot!"

Hope things are going ok for you over in the sandbox, BH6. Stay safe. We appreciate your comments.

#10 I'll make the supermarket tabloids, they'll write some awful stuff
But the more they run my name down the more my price goes up

So let's hitch up the wagons and head out west
To the land of the fun and the sun
We'll be real world bachelor jackass millionaires
Hey hey, Hollywood, here we come

'Cause when you're a celebrity
It's adios reality
No matter what you do
People think you're cool
Just 'cause you're on TV

#11 Phil/AP - everything's fine, thanks for asking brothers. I'm outta here in less than 3 weeks for sure. (Actually closer to 13 and a wake up but whose counting!) It's been a good deployment, we lost a few lads from the engineer unit on the base and some EOD brothers but all the guys in my unit are coming back fine. We had one of our MP's lose a leg from below the knee cap due to an IED a couple months back while on a Combat Logistics Patrol (CLP). However, due to the new up armor we got on the hummers it could have been much worse. One of my boys has hit two IED's in the past 8 weeks and is convinced the new armor saved his jewels both times. Most of the injuries are actually due to vehicle accidents on our own part more than anything else. In the six months I will have been here we supported two historical elections, and four major operations. We're pretty proud of what we've been able to accomplish. As usual the MSM has not covered things here imho very accurately. I think this is a common theme that you will hear from other vets as well. Matter of fact, a side from military correspondents I know of only one civie journo showing up here - some Argentinian babe who I think flew here by mistake - though she did manage to interview one of my Marines who was incidentally Argentine himself.

I'm at TQ and this place is probably one of the lesser hot spots to boot - I'm surprised more media nerds didn't stop by. I think they like the nicer USAF base in Balad and Camp Cupcake in Kuwait - pussies. Anyways, we probably got mortared and took rocket fire a dozen times since I've been here. I think why we took such little action (my wife begs to differ on that point - about it making her feel any better) was a combo of good relations w/the locals via our CAG & MTT teams in Habbaniya and some kick ass counter intel on our part which waxed some insurgent mortar teams a couple months back. Another thing that helped was when Steel Curtain kicked off around November and 3/6 & I think 2/1 killed about 200+ hajjis on the Syrian border by a place called Sedat (sp?) - it's near Al Qaim. I'm pretty sure the news never told the whole story on this event as we don't really advertise our ass kickings anymore. I had buddies & peers who were there first hand and can attest to the ass kicking we put on those mother fuckers. It was a turkey shoot. I have more stories on this but it would take longer than I have here and some are pretty f'n nasty for the internet. Bottomline - I ensure you would be proud as shit to know how "efficient" American troops are.

I know Bill Roggio who comments here once in a while was in Al Anbar for about a month last fall - he might of been around there at the time w/RCT2. Other then him (who seems to be a credible guy though more optimistic about Iraqi cognitive powers than I am) and maybe some of his colleagues the media have been a bunch of Class-A Number-One Ass-Clowns in my book. Some times I wonder if were not clipping the wrong clowns. I'd like to choke-out a few folks on MSNBC/CBS/&CNN. Anyhow, we're proud of our service here but are ready to come home and see the family. I do absolutely appreciate everyone's support while I've been here and hopefully another Rantfest in D.C. can happen sometime soon and I can shake all your hands in person if possible and maybe buy a few rounds for y'all. I will guarantee one thing though, come this 17 March when I'm back in CONUS, in the greatest country in the history of the mud ball, my Irish-ass is gonna be drunk as cooter brown on a three day bender.

#13 You've got a right to be proud. Thanks to you all. You guys have done a great job. Now just come back in one piece so we can read some of those stories real soon.

#14 Thanks, Broadhead - come back safely and thanks for your service. Semper Fi!

THANKS Broadhead6.

#17 Sigh. I used to think Georgie was hot, and then he started improvising his own remarks instead of reading the script.

BTW, stay safe, Broadhead6!

#18 Aye, and thanks as Well, broadhead6, to you and your men. I took the liberty of posting your post at my website, where I said the following:

However, if you stagger away from the Rantfest with one less dollar in your wallet than when you walked in, everyone there should be covered with eternal shame for the rest of their lives...

Let me know when the next one will be, and whether you're going, and I'll Amazon to Fred a contribution to help you along to total inebriation.

#19 I echo all the comments, BH6. Thanks for all you and your boys do for us. Good luck and Godspeed, my friend!

#20 You and your Marines have made us as proud as we expected, Broadhead6. You'll be pleased to know the major lights of the MSM have been losing significant sales -- market share is no longer even an issue, because the market itself is shrinking -- as ordinary Americans have noticed the journalists refuse to report important news like your little turkey shoot, or are slanting things blatantly. So while y'all are winning the war in the sandbox, the MSM is losing their war back home. My view, anyway. ;-)

#21 Go Broadhead6!

Man, what a contrast between a sweet guy like Don Knotts, who only wanted to make folks laugh, and murder-loving punks like Clooney.
