I have been doing some catch up on the news. I will say that the media here in the United States is piss poor. Why is it that the MSM’s report Baghdad as being the war? Shit doesn’t even really go on there. There are far worse places in Iraq that have story’s that would blow one’s mind if they knew. Where I was at, I hardly EVER saw reporters there. Heck we didn’t even get USO people there. Simply put, they were scared to be there. At least in Baghdad you could be behind 2 miles of heavily fortified protection.
I know my boys back in the ‘raq’ are fully engaged on a daily basis and I haven’t read a single blurb about the good things they have been doing.
Other than being engaged and fucking the enemy up, we did great things as well. We enabled kids to go to school, we protected children along certain routes, etc, etc. If the media only knew what these big bad killing machine US Soldiers really did? Could they possibly show compassion or not shoot someone? It’s always about the bad or Baghdad!
