First of off, thank you for making this website so interesting! I read quite a few of the articals before I decided to register and I think this is a well thought and well mature comunity (please forgive my spelling, I am not the greatest). I am currently deployed to Iraq, in the Al Anbar province and will be here for the remainder of the year. Thank you again for the hard work and dedication of the site it looks well maintained and intelligent.

Very Respectfully,
Dark Seraph

Welcome Dark_Seraph!

There are lots of handy tips available in the Handbook of ATS Links.

Here are some Smokin' BBQ Threads (Important Website-Related Topics).

Configuring your MyATS page is the easiest way to put the ATS universe at your fingertips.

Be sure to check out Social Issues on PTS. I'm sure you will find the atmosphere to be friendly, enlightening, and rewarding.

Here's an excellent little, unobtrusive spell checker, in case you need one: IESpell 2.1.1 build 325

A convenient text editor also comes in handy when composing those epic posts: EditPad Lite.

Oh, and vote for the Automotive Forum.

Semper Fidelis,

Dark_Seraph, welcome to ATS

Thanks for your service!

It might not be the smartest idea to use your name on the internet, especially ATS.

You never know when something might come around to bite you in the arse, you know, the big green weenie

There's an EDIT button at the top of each of your post, just click that and you can edit out your name if you would like. The button goes away after a few hours.

Welcome to ATS marine.

I know you guys are trained to fight but I would think getting your self a ten gallon drum of jolt cola and planting yourself on the ats board is probably the safest way to spend your tour.

I would be interested in hearing updates from the long as they don't get you in trouble that is.

Good luck and keep your head down.

Good to see you Devil Dog, take care and do what you can do. By making those poor bastards die for their country, before they do on to us.


You go ahead and make the mess, the ARMY will clean up after.

Don't worry, there are probably 1,000s of Cpl. Hunters in the Corp, and a few in that area. Now if he gave us his company and personal info for mail address stuff, that might be a slight risk, but no, it's all good.

note: I edited his name with X's

There's 10 on active duty.

3 - Airwing
3 - Grunt unit
2 - Arty
1 - Comm
1 - Support

Anyways, ADVISOR's right. It really don't make a diff as long as you don't give any specific information.

If you really care about your country, you will rip off your uniform, throw down your guns, and fight to stop this illegal, immoral war...

Id like to know, how is Iraq? How bad is it? How bad are you guys making it over there?
I want to know why you chose to fight this war.

Who do you kill? What exactly is your definition of "insurgent"? People who fight for Al Queda only, or people who fight against you in general...there is a very distinct difference.

I respect you for wanting to fight for good. I hope you realize, though, that your leaders use you as pawns, lie to you, and trick you into fighting for evil. In the words of Henry Kissinger, one of the major globalist players of the 20th Century and a man whos had alot of influence in American foreign policy for the last 30 years, he said:

Military men are dumb, stupid animals, to be used as pawns for foreign policy..

(there are countless sources for this quote, here is just one)

I didnt say it, Henry Kissinger did, so direct your ignorant comments to him for those people offended by this quote.

Now you have gotten a glimpse into the psyche of those who dare call themselves your leaders. This is what they think of you. Do you think they give a damn if you die? Do you think they give a damn if civilians die? Do you really think they give two #s about you or your family? Of course not! If they did, they wouldnt send you in harms way unless it was absolutely positively neccesary...which this war in Iraq isnt....I sure hope you realize this my friend.

No WMDs, No Iraq link to 911. No Saddam link to Al question sir...WHY ARE YOU STILL IN IRAQ SLAUGHTERING PEOPLE????

If you can answer this question for me, without using the propoganda fed to you by your so-called "leaders", Id be very happy.

Perhaps you should take your own advice. Just a question but didn't you know that Vets from Nam wore their uniforms/cammies as a sign of resistance?

Don't "assume" his comments would be ignorant, damn dude look in the f'n mirror before going futher on this.

Geeze people carry on...

posted on Sep, 9 2006 @ 10:39 PM
You know AscendedMaster THAT was uncalled for and you no right to do that I disagree with the war but its his choice and you should never tell what another man should do

Completely uncalled for!

Anyway welcome to here at ATS feel free to look around we have a very help community that willing to help you with any thing. (unlike some people)

I don't think such a diatribe is appropriate to the introductory thread. I've had lesser offenses expunged.

I guess some peoples folks these days just don't teach their kids manners anymore.

Stay safe over there!

I wasn't going to issue a warn beyond that verbal, but seeing as the member signed off after posting that, my perogative has changed. It would have gone unpunished by me at least previously if an explanation was honestly offered, but not after that.

It is too late now, well earned and deserved.

Dark_Seraph, Welcome To ATS!

Please forgive the fact that some of our members are less considerate than others.

I hope you won't let an unfortunate lack of taste on the part of one member sour you on what is otherwise a stimulating and reasonably well-mannered community.

The staff is committed to keeping it that way, so please do not hesitate to contact any of us via U2U or submit a complaint if you should have any questions or encounter any problems.

We're here to help.
