Iraq Will NOT Become Viet Nam!We all know what the media and the left want, don't we? They want to have the same "success" with Iraq that they had with Viet Nam. Sorry folks, no amount of your phonied targeted "polls" is going to convince me that Americans are going to fall for that again! The internet will prevent it! Lance in Iraq gives some reasons. Lance even documents his narrative with pictures! "We were going on another dull mission, and I wasn’t really looking forward to it. I should want all our missions to be dull, recognizing the safety that dullness provides. I bet my wife would like all of our missions to be dull. I don’t want to get shot at every day or have someone try to blow us up, but I wouldn’t mind something to make the day a little more eventful. You prepare yourself mentally for that, but it was unlikely anything would happen on this day. I should be happy about that. It’s a sign of progress, a good thing."Anyone who has been reading my rants for any length of time knows that I am determined to do what I can do to prevent today's military personnel from having any experience like so many of my friends who went to Viet Nam. They came home to scorn, venom, and attacks of every sort! As I scan the many military blogs of today, I am blown away by the bald faced honesty, the insight, the wisdom, and the articulate and talented writing that goes into these diaries! Each milblog has links to other milblogs I do not have in my favorites. I am overwhelmed with their willingness to share their thoughts and feelings. What a great outlet it must be for them. What a gift they are giving their families and friends at home! Another phenomenon in the blogosphere are the wives [sorry, haven't seen any male spouses who blog, if you know any please share their html] who are also joining in with their own contributions. I had occasion to e-mail one of them,
"I know a good bunch of guys over there but they're pretty spoiled already. they dont want for stuff for long, as once they mention anything about 15 people jump to it and its on the way before they can finish the sentance. (new wives HA!)"
So when I say "Iraq Will NOT Become Viet Nam!" I am confident that it's true! Go find your own reasons for agreeing with me! They're out there! Now how do I convince the morons on the left?
On the third try, I have given up! Blogger is having its way with me today! Someday when my ire has cooled, I will discuss why this has been the technical Monday from HELL! This just proves it!
