Too Much Blood: What Has Iraq Done to Us?

POSTED:

Below is a letter home from an unnamed Marine F/A -18 pilot in Iraq. Read Matt Taibbi's latest column and share your reactions.

The fellas from 121 started showing up the other day. It's starting to sink in...I'll have to go home, the opportunities to kill these fuckers is rapidly coming to an end. Like a hobby I'll never get to practice again. It's not a great war, but it's the only one we've got. God, I do love killing these bastards...Morale is high, the Marines can smell the barn. It's hard to keep them focused. I still have 20 days of kill these motherfuckers, so I don't wanna take even one day off.
