I quoted you on my blog yesterday and was abosolutely STUNNED to find that I had to defend you - or defend your firsthand observations tonight. I am so grateful for you and the few others who have the courage and honesty to stand up and tell the truth about the War in Iraq. We are inundated here with nothing but political agenda and body counts on television, radio, and in the papers... The American people need to know what's really happening in Iraq and the wonderful job that our men and women in the military are doing. Yes, we need to know what the negatives are and stay informed, but to deny the positive aspects of what's happening is wrong, in my opinion. It's also of the utmost importance that the world knows IRAQIS too are fighting for their freedom, and we're not just an occupying force that's cramming democracy down their throats, that progress is making big and small inroads. Democracy of any kind is an undeniably long row to hoe in the Middle East, but I believe that need to be faithful and finish the job. GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS and Michael, let them know that no matter what - we owe them so much - they are our heart.
