A vet's view - "It sucks"

When asked what he thought about war, Widge' said: "It sucks."

And a war in Iraq "double sucks because the place is like a sucking ass wound even without a war."

Does war suck - you bet. I would much rather not be going, but at this stage, my focus is on working hard to keep my friends alive, Allah be damned.

Clarification: Widge' is a buddy of mine who I deployed with to Bosnia. He went to Iraq shortly after we returned from that deployment. From time to time I may post his comments.
