Suggest you phone the embassy, 02-205-4000, and ask the operator to forward you to the Gunny.

There are not enough Chinamen in the world to stop a fully armed marine regiment from going where ever they want to go.

Well, some Taiwanese, South Koreans, and Kuwaitis might give a thanks. Some folks not, that the way of the world.

BTW, last month I spent three days with a Lao refugee family who'd gone to the U.S. in 1976 with their four young boys and three suitcases, and no $$$. During some conversation we kind of wondered how they might have fared if there'd been no war in Laos, or if the LGMs hadn't taken over. As it is, one son is an orthopedic surgeon, one a lawyer, one a computer guru, and the last "boy," who was two when they hit the U.S., is a successful dentist.

And, yes, other families have done well, too, in different ways, and many have done less well.

I guess you are not a " Chinaman" than or you had picked up some other comment.

And don't forget this is an international forum, we may have members here from countries where the navy dropped some bombs and killed some people, even in Europe, not that very long time ago.
I know they were defending the freedom so that i can write comments like the one above , right?

But if i look at the recent wikileaks about the war in Iraq i don't know if there is much to celebrate.

I'm asking nicely that everyone respect the OP's inquiry and limit this thread to the topic at hand. Further arguments over history will be deleted, and participants suspended.
