Eyes to See/Ears to Hear

In order to combat my annoyance over the unwillingness of media outlets to tell the truth and avoid letting their bias rule, as well as to have an outlet for my very (at times) wordy self, this blog has been created by yours truly. This will be an accounting of events in the world, my country, and my little piece of the world as best as I can see it, hear it, and relay it.

Iraq Again

Headlines scream that Americans are impatient with our military's remaining in Iraq, anxious for them to return home, and growing increasingly frustrated with the Bush Administration for their seeming indifference to the polls that suggest that our McDonald's society isn't producing the desired result in the time that these upset Americans deem appropriate.

Never mind that the pollers and pollees have no clue as to what it is like to be a part of the military in Iraq or to aid a people who so desire the freedoms we have; something that has NEVER occurred in their nation EVER.

So? What is the timetable all you chairside experts on military operations and establishing democracy amidst terrorists who are Iraqi against Iraqi, Iranians who dread the establishment of Iraq's coming autonomy, Syrians crossing the border, Jordanians, etc., you name it. But we all know what to do now, don't we? Bring our boys home and let Iraq take care of herself.

Of course, she will fall if we do that. Of course, we don't care since our military will be home. Of course if France, who was once occupied and know, if they choose to stir their memories that is, that what America is doing is NOT occupying; if they would have done the right thing and lent the hand in Iraq that they should of, along with shame on you Germany, the possibility exists that the Americans, Poles, Australians, British and other nations who have lent their support to dear Iraq at this time, would not be having as hard a time as they are.

It is easy to criticize what we don't understand and what we don't like, but we would do well to remember that America is the land of the free and still the home of the brave. All you need do is look to the majority of our military men and women who lay their lives down so that the Iraqi people can be free.

I for one don't like some of the politics that abound in this issue, but I do agree that a free Iraq is desired by a tremendous amount of Iraqi people; most especially their women, who were so terribly oppressed. Shame on us again, especially we women who speak out with such hostility against the President and our presence in Iraq, to lend no support to women who deserve to have the opportunities that freedom would afford them. They are tasting it now. Just ask them what they think, ABC, CNN, NBC, AP, and all you other BIG MEDIA reporters.
