The boys discuss events in Houston and how the nation is being reminded of what it is to be a part of the melting pot that is America and the goodness that is inherent in most people.
IRAQ UPDATE, MUQTADA AL-SADR VISITS SAUDI ARABIA & THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY UNITS IN IRAQ: Jerry Durrant
Jerry Durrant, Col USMC (ret) joined us to talk about his time as a LCpl in Vietnam in 1970 as well as his thoughts on Iraq today.
He is currently part of a private company that does military education for the Iraqi military. He has interesting things to say about where Iraq is and what is next for the war-torn nation.
He raises concerns about Sunni’s being eliminated from the Iraqi military, the upcoming Kurdish referendum and genuine surprise at the visit Muqtada al Sadr made to Saudi Arabia recently.
Durrant is a great representative of the Marine Corps and a thoughtful guest.
We’ll talk about today’s headlines:
– Ecstasy as a treatment for PTS
– Where are most of the opium prescriptions being written in the nation?
– A US Army trial, in Federal Court, discloses an incredible tale of sell US military equipment to deals for cash and then that equipment finding it’s way to Mexico, Ukraine, Russia and other nations.
The Boys discuss General Bob Neller’s comments today about leadership and current events on ALL MARINE RADIO, and the ongoing disaster in that is unfolding in Houston. Why does it seem that the poor always seem to bear the heaviest burden during these disasters?
