Out in the boonies.

We've got to take baby steps until we can walk. We've got to ... bring these kids home because this has to stop. This violence has to stop.

We take and take and take from these kids - and what are they going to do? The bottom line is, you've got a bunch of kids with nothing to do - and things escalate. .... You have to listen to kids. We stop doing that as adults.

That's far from accurate. We love you. We care about you, ... We don't believe your future is going to depend on this.

We are devastated by the loss of our friends, ... They were true American patriots and heroes who were performing a mission that is critical to the success of the coalition efforts to secure peace and freedom in Iraq.
