I almost wasnt going to post this ..but here it is...from my POV.


1arm's opening post said alot... A few months ago some soldier friends of mine( I have made many in my 16 months here) went out to a hospital where they had helped rebuild. They were part of a SPTT team that area of S.Baghdad. As part of their duties , were to be as goodwill ambassadors with the locals . They passed out candy to the children of the neighborhood and so whenever they would come--they described the glow on all those kids faces like it really seemed like the people were feeling good about Americans. So, this last time out they had the usual crowd of 30 or so kids from the neighborhood out there, passing out the candy when a carbomber drove up and killed 1 soldier and 4 Iraqi soldiers and about 26 of all those little kids....We held a memorial service for the fallen soldier and the one thing I heard over and over wasnt about how he died needlessly, its how he died doing his duty. (officially). And the we wept for our fallen comrade.. and even more because they had know the names of those kids they were helping. It hit real hard for the soldiers who have kids of their own..Now this little neighborhood that had once been filled with the sound of childrens laughter was now ghostly silent. And the soldiers may not agree with the politics of the war, most dont But they know when they are right.They do it cause its the right thing to do. And soldiers are trained to do their duty. The U.S. military men and women here are the best of the best. The politicians are the . Thats just my .02

The same genocide and and general mayhem that went on in Iraq has been going on in Africa since forever. You name it, Liberia, Sudan, Rwanda, Somalia, etc. All of these countries have had so called ethnic cleansing, genocide, and "freedom fighters". The U.S. didn't jump in and send troops over there to restore democracy. The simple reason, THERE IS NO MONEY TO BE MADE in Africa. Now Iraq, thats a different story, tons of money to me made over there because of the black stuff 30k feet underground. Governments love war, its a profit machine and it stimulates the economy. Its a shame that servicemen/women are the unwitting pawns in this game and I hope they all come back to be with their families. Like they say, "Old men makes wars, young men fight them."
