This is not a war blog, but my first post is on Iraq. Is that alright? Sorry, if I offend some of you right off the bat...OK, here goes:
Iraq, right? WTF? Are we really fighting a war over there? Everybody acts like we're winning or losing, that you're on our side or their side, or if we leave the country we are 'surrendering', or that we need to stop saying that we're 'losing the war'. All of that is complete BS! The war is over. We won. We captured their leader, tried him, and executed him. Regime change. No more dangerous weapons. Didn't we accomplish our objective? Now, the American troops remain in Iraq to clean up the mess that they made. We don't want it to become a terrorist breeding ground! Except that, while American troops are there, it's a perfect place for terrorists to train and target actual Americans.
Why can't we just admit that the war is over! We won! Clean it up, and get the fuck out. Jesus!
(sorry, I'm not usually into ranting - but what are blogs for? i'll try to add some humor to the 2nd post!)
