Another bloody day in Baghdad.
An Iraqi gentleman that I've been comunicating with thinks that the escalated violence is a an attempt by the Mhadi Army to add to the growing disaproval of President Bush's plan to send more troops. "The Surge".
I wonder. If they continue to attack our troops their plan might just back fire.
We are a vindictive lot, us Americans.
One need only think back to the 9/11 incident to see just how vindictive.
We, spurned by Bush, standing in the rubble, proclaiming that the perpetrators would pay, and we were out to blow Afghanistan off the map.
There isn't a day goes bye that I don't think that my son may be over there soon.
I tell myself that I believe in destiny. If time comes, it comes. I tell myself that he is doing what he wanted to do when he signed up. Should he meet his destiny over there, I guess it was doing what he wanted. Then I think how cliche.
I have to reassure myself that he's a pretty crafty fella, and he's going to be alright.
That's what helps me sleep nights.
That's what gets me through the days.
I still worry a lot.
So I started this blog. To help pass the time, and maybe get to know some others going through the same thing. Fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters.
I've yet to hear from anyone, though several people have visited my blog.
I've also become vigilant of goings on in cyber space.
I'm becomming active questioning politicians, trying to be sure I know whats going on in their minds.
I want to know the answers to a couple of things.
1) What is their opinion of the war?
2) Do they have a plan to end it and get our troops out?
3) Do they have a plan for affordable health care?
4) How can we make higher eduction more affordable for all.
That's it, four short questions, but ones that anyone runing for president should have answers for.
Im going to start with, HilloryClinton www.hillaryclinton.com. TomVilsak,www.tomvilsack08.com.
I will post others in future blogs.
God bless America, and keep our troops safe.
