Iraqis Welcome U.S. Marines in Shatra
March 31, 2003
SHATRA, Iraq (Reuters) - Hundreds of Iraqis shouting "Welcome to Iraq" greeted Marines who entered the town of Shatra Monday after storming it with planes, tanks and helicopter gunships.
A foot patrol picked its way through the small southern town, 20 miles north of the city of Nassiriya, after being beckoned in by a crowd of people.
"There's no problem here. We are happy to see Americans," one young man shouted.
"It's not every day you get to liberate people," said one delighted Marine.

Mario. for the last time you were not a Marine--EVER! You admitted it to Kevin McHugh on these very boards.
I qote your own words:"Kevin, Your right, I could never had been in the Marine Corps because everyone in the Marine Corps thinks just like you."
