    Yea I'm not understanding how you don't get this is set during the current Iraq war but to disagree with poster number 2. Since these guys are the first Marine this and that I'm sure it 03 the start of the war.

    Easy tiger I slammed the guy too but you don't have to be overly rude. Actually this is the second Iraq war America invaded Iraq back in 91 after pushing them from Kuwait.

    Thankfully you were sparred some of the worst post looks like the editor stepped up but if worst comes to worst you can always look something up on Wilkipedia although if possible I'd avoid it.

    Which is actually a shame since your forces were involved in the conflict as well.
