Our Soldiers (Or-- In "Antiwar" Liberalspeak-- "The Imperial Stormtroopers")

Very moving pictures.

Keep up the good work.

I've seen the Michael Yon photo of the soldier holding the little girl. The story goes that some Iraqi kids were following along with a US convoy as it passed through when a suicide bomber in a car detonated his bomb in the midst of them. The little girl was rushed to a US hospital but she didn't live. This is what we're up against.

Religious fanaticism leads to savagery. You have to feel for what the soldiers are going through over there.

Thank you Kell.

John: I know what we're up against.

But do they? They make the mistake of interpreting our good natures and civility as "weakness," and bank on that accordingly, but should fear a rightous rage that is pushed too far.

Phelonius: I do.

This is a heartbreaking picture, worth of a Pulitzer prize. Unfortunately, not too many people will change their minds.

Hey Irina. :)

Because they see things inverted. They're backwards.
