READ ALL ABOUT IT.
I hear it a lot lately.
"Things must be quieting down over there, there isn't much on the news".
The serge must have worked".
And now the news.
Things must be quieting down.
Could it be a conspiracy?
A little help for John McCain's campaign?
Nah, those most honorable Republicans wouldn't have any part of that.
While I have no doubt that the serge did wonders for our over worked and under manned troops in Iraq, I seriously doubt that it did much good.
The war in Iraq is a civil war between tribes that is going to play out one way or the other.
If we, (the US), aid the weaker of the tribes in winning, when we leave the strongest will retake the government.
Our involvement is causing a considerable amount of confusion by bringing Al Quaida, and every other radical Islamic group with an axe to grind with the good ole US into the fray.
I feel a strong sense of responsibility to stay in Iraq and clean up our mess. Yet I feel that if we cease combat operations, and move on to other matters at hand, (Afghanistan), the extremists will follow us, leaving the Iraqi tribes to settle the issue in their own way.
While it probably won't be a democratic process. It will be for the best of the country as a whole.
Just my two cents worth.
I want to welcome kbug to our small but growing group of "One Percenters".
Stop bye and say hi.
If you have a loved one serving in the military, you are a part of the group.
If you want to be added to the blogrolls, get involved.
Tells us what you think.
On the home front, five days until we pick Matt up at the airport.
I won't forget to charge the battery for the camera this time.
Remember our heroes in harms way daily in your own personal way. The power of thought and prayer is mightier than you think.
Have a great weekend.
