  1. HI… YOU DON’T KNOW ME… IS BETTER THAT WAY… WELL, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING… I’VE BEEN IN TAJI FOR ABOUT 10 MONTHS… THIS BASE IS BETTER THAN IS HAS EVER BEEN… YOU ARE STILL LIVING IN THE PAST… APPARENTLY YOUR PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES LEFT A BIG SCAR ON YOU… LET IT GO MAN… GO WITH THE FLOW…. I’VE BEEN IN COUNTRY FOR 15 MONTHS STRAIGHT…. I’VE SEEN PEOPLE LIKE YOU COME AND GO… THEY ALL SUCK… YOU DON’T BRING ANYTHING TO THE IRAQIS… SO, WHY YOU ARE HERE FOR….???? JUST TO WRITE YOUR LAME BLOG….???? JUST FAKE AN INJURY AND GO QUIETLY BACK TO THE STATES… I’VE BEEN INVOLVED IN SERIOUS “INCIDENTS” AND IF IT’S NOT FOR THE IRAQIS FIGHTING NEXT TO ME, PROBABLY I WOULD NOT BE HERE WRITING TO YOU… SO, I RECOMMEND TO EMBRACE THE SUCK, GO WITH THE FLOW, AND YES, STOP WRITING LIES TO INOCENT PEOPLE…. THIS COUNTRY CAN BE STEERED TO THE RIGHT DIRECTION, BUT NOT BY PEOPLE LIKE YOU… BUT BY PEOPLE WHO ARE PASSIONATE TO RECONSTRUCT AND POSITIVELY INFLUENCE THESE IRAQIS AND THEIR INSTITUTIONS….IN ADDITION, PHOENIX ACADEMY DON’T SUCK…. YOU ARE WITH THAT ATTITUDE…. AND IS NOT A WASTE OF TIME… IS A LULL FOR ALL YOU “GUNG HO” DUDES TO REFLECT IN THE REALITY OF YOUR OWN MEAGER AND POINTLESS EXISTENCE…. BY THE WAY, I AM NOT A “FOBBIT”….. MAYBE YOU SHOULD BECOME ONE…

  2. The troops who spend long days “outside the wire” on combat and peacekeeping missions in simmering Humvees and heavy body armor taunt their counterparts inside the bases by calling them “fobbits.” The name comes from combining the military abbreviation for a Forward Operating Base, or FOB, with the short, pointy-eared hobbits from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
