Murdering trips?? wow.. that's strong language. I remember rolling through minefields under arty fire in Desert Storm as we breached the Iraqi defenses in southern Kuwait. I didn't have much empathy for what I considered to be a bunch of spoiled oil barrons, and quite frankly I didn't think at that point that the mission was worth it.. Let em all kill each other in the Middle East... that was what I thought back those many years ago.
However.. after disloging the Iraqis from the Airport and moving into Kuwait City I understood. The grown men climbing onto my LAV and crying as they kissed me (difficult for me believe it) made an impression on me. The people of Kuwait poured out all over and welcomed us. I felt sheepish about my ealier disdain for the mission. Argue if you will the merits of this current Iraqi war. Impune the celebrations when the statues fell. Do all that. But a majority of the Iraqi population is relieved to be liberated.. yes liberated... The insurgents/Baathist remnants are a minority. Al-Sadyr is a fringe loony. There are just conflicts. I know the far left can't stomach that but it is true. Nationalism by the way.. is not a dirty word over here yet. Unilateralism is on it's way to being a dirty word, but not yet. Oh by the way... check out the latest on the esteemed U.N. and the "Food for Oil" program. Some breaking news today I heard. I'll write more later but I have to make some obscene profits in our evil capitalistic system first. I'm sure I'll be exploiting some 3rd world sap.. but at least "W' will keep my taxes low. Just kidding... you socialists are just too serious... lighten up and sleep easy, the U.S. will protect you no matter how ungrateful you are.

I know that the establishment has been been quite successful in portraying "W" as a dim bulb. But I for one.. did not graduate from Yale. I was a fine Sargeant in the USMC, butt they didn" ever let me fly thier jets.(can you imagine??). I didn't get any masters degrees(Like "W") or such. I think the left bit themselves in the but when they painted W as such a gomer in the media because it has been easy for him to exceed expectations since. Take the Bush/Gore debates..,, Made Gore look like the goon he was (and a fibber as well).
But I digress.. The Hapless recruits of Al-Queda sign up to DIE. American servicemen sign up to serve thier country and to WIN. All the branches of our military are exceeding thier recruitment quotas by the way... (an all volunteer force for you Euros who might wonder) In the end I cant help but think that the principles of freedom and democracy will triumph over 12th century Islamo fascism.
