Michaeal Yon is a writer that is in Iraq and honestly and candidly gives his experiences via his Blog. This is some amazing stuff and should be read by every American. I wish it could be read regularily on school campuses to try to counter the perpetual lies that are poluting kids minds daily. this article reminds us all of the heroism that is daily excersized by our military and the level of care and compassion they show to even the worst of our enemies. The hate America first ideologs from the left should read this, but they won't. And even if they did, it would be dismissed as lies and/or propaganda from the evil administration. But everyone else should take the time to follow the link and get to know this guy. He tells it straight and tells the story of Iraq in a manner that is very visual.
There is no doubt, our military is made up of some amazing people who are doing incredible things and are doing them at great personal risk and sacrifice, all so we can sit in our comfotable homes and read and chat about it from thousands of miles away. Our freedom depends on these great people. They deserve our respect and support. And "support"" does not mean wanting them home! It means that we support their mission and their efforts as well. Hug a vet and thank them.
