The Code of Conduct

Enacted by Presidential Order in 1955:
The Code of Conduct is a personal code for all members of the US Armed Forces.
It states the tradition established by the soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen since 1775.

Simply put: Keep faith with your countrymen.

Article I: I am an American, fighting in the armed forces which guard
my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their

Article II: I will never surrender of my own free will.
If in command I will never surrender the members of my command while
they still have the means to resist.

Article III: If I am
captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make
every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither
parole nor special favors from the enemy.

Article IV: If I
become a prisoner of war, I will keep faith with my fellow prisoners. I
will give no information nor take part in any action which might be
harmful to my comrades. If I am senior, I will take command. If not, I
will obey the lawful orders of those appointed over me and will back
them up in every way.

Article V: When questioned, should I
become a prisoner of war, I am required to give name, rank, service,
number, and date of birth. I will evade answering further questions to
the utmost of my ability. I will make no oral or written statements
disloyal to my country and its allies or harmful to their cause.

VI: I will never forget that I am an American, responsible for my
actions, and dedicated to the principles which made my country free. I
will trust in my God and in the United States of America.

Truth Hurts

The Real Story Behind the Falling Casualty Rate in Iraq
from Daily Kos by Brandon Friedman <>

Simply put, the answer is no. The surge is not working and George W.
Bush and Frederick Kagan were not right. Despite what right-wing blogs
are saying, and despite what conservative observers are noting,
the plunge in violence is actually the result of an Iraqi political
decision made by and implemented by Iraqis—and the drop has little to
do with the "surge"—an infusion of 30,000 troops (which wouldn’t fill a
Major League stadium) into Baghdad, a city of six million people.

"the plunge in violence is actually the result of an Iraqi political decision.."
George Bush and the US Military made it possible for the Iraqi people to make their own decisions.

The 'surge', with its new tactics, has made Iraq a much safer place. The US ARMY and the USMC has worked with the IRAQI ARMY and IRAQI POLICE, and created the conditions in which Iraq has a chance for lasting terror-free peace.

The liberals in this country, who are the best friends of terrorists, need to accept the fact, that George Bush has succeeded in Iraq.

The 30,000 additional troops were required to initiate this new strategy. With these troops, who are now based in small outposts, the US Military has made a better connection to the Iraqi people. And the Iraqis have now throw the terrorists out. The Iraqis have stopped harboring terrorists, because they have learned to trust the US Military.

If the liberals could only put aside their blind hatred of George Bush, and see reality, then maybe they would support the troops by donating to Project Valour-IT.
