Generation Kill by Evan Wright.

Evan wright, former seedling, was imbedded with the marine recon unit that led the charge into Iraq.

It is a harrowing portrayal of war and an honest reporting of what really goes on over there.

GET THIS BOOK.

Just read it. Evan absolutely rocks! Don't buy it just cause he's an ex Seedling. Buy it to find out something about the personalities and motivations of the psychos who join the Marines, go blow things up. That's what Evan does. I sort of think he's found the secret to loving everybody he meets, zits and all, even a little for Captain America.

A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.

If i can find it i will read it. I need a new book.  Finally finished QUO VADIS polital story but writen in 1896 about the politics of Nero. And i shit you not its insanely close to the polotics of today.  Down to the secret society's and imigrant wild cards we love so much.  Sorry to interupt but i keep getting sucked into elan world and did enjoy the posts here i read and felt the need to contribute.  
QUO VADIS. excellent reading.
