Someone should care, maybe not you....

My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

New link

I have added a new link. I realize this may not be a momentous occasion for you but this is a blog that is well worth reading. Michael Yon is an independent journalist operating in Iraq. This blog is where he reports, his OnLine Magazine. I have read a bit of it and it is good. Those who are in favor of what we are doing there and those who are opposed should read this interesting new voice. He certainly brings things to you at a level that the regualr press does not.

I admit I am curious as to how Mr. Yon got his press credentials and managed to get to Iraq and apparently embedded with a US unit. The military doesn't let just anyone travel with the troops. I will be doing some research on that and will get back to you if I learn anything interesting.
Meanwhile, read....

PS If you feel up to a gut wrenching read go to this post on his blog. The photo I was going to post the photo that goes with the link but you will see it there.

Most of the soldiers I have talked to that have met Geraldo Rivera have NOT been impressed at all. But it helps to be backed by major networks.....

I'm always struck by how different are the blogs from those who were or are there, and the regular TV and newspaper reports.

Damn.

Thats a hectic article. I think that suicide bomber that attacked the soldiers and kids deserves to rot in hell.

THEY ARE COWARDS AND MURDERERS.

Anybody that hails them as heroes or calls them martyrs, needs an english language lesson, a dictionary and a bitch slap.
