Looks like we may have found our Pulitzer winner in photography this year.

    Too bad more people don’t realize that this is what being an American is all about. My heart goes out to the family of that child.

    And when I say “all about”, I mean caring and concern for others less fortunate.

    I wonder if this picture was plastered all over Al-Jazeera, Abu Dhabi TV, and Al-Arabiya. I get the feeling it wasn’t

    “The Quagmire: As the Iraq war drags on, it’s beginning to look a lot like Vietnam

    By ROBERT DREYFUSS

    The news from Iraq is bad and getting worse with each passing day….”

    Can Zarqawi, in his wildest onanistic fantasies, improve on this?

  5. Anne Haight says:

    First of all, the war isn’t “dragging on”. It’s basically over, and the terrorists lost. The Coalition is no longer engaged in widespread shooting conflicts with terrorists. It’s a rebellion that the Iraqi police are now handling, sometimes with U.S. assistance.

    Iraq has a new government. We are not making decisions there anymore. I would hardly call it a quagmire. We are closing in on Zarqawi (he’s on the move constantly now, and we are picking off his subordinates one by one), destroying huge caches of explosives and weapons, and the citizens are ratting them out because they’re pissed off.

    But there are people who persist in calling it a quagmire, “another Vietnam”, because they want us to fail. They want Iraq to fail in its bid for freedom and liberty from despotism and the rule of violence.

    That, my friends, is sick.

    Well, Ann, these folks like to mischaracterise the war effort, because they are self-hating Americans. They are so brainwashed by thei leftist ideology, that they have been rendered unable to ssee reason.

    I thinks the americans and all the rest of the others in Iraq that are not living there should be able to come back home, they are wasting there time and the country seems so out of control it is not fair that because the iraqi’s cannot get the country under control a child looses a parent.I wish it would just stop it breaks my heart to hear about soldiers being killed cuse I know somewher a child,spouse,parent and grandparent have lost a loved one.I live in canada and I do not understand why people seem so anti american but when they want help they EXPECT the americans to help them and then when they have helped they turn backs on them and hack them down, shame on the rest of the world for being back stabbers wanting america’s help but hacking them down.

    I just got back from Iraq in November and have volunteered to go back in a friend of mines place since he wife is expecting a child. I have spent a year in Iraq and one in Afghanastan and have yet to fire a shot with my rifle. True many have been attacked, but with my job as a medic I get to take care of children like you see here. Also, if you look at the UN’s official number of causalties in Iraq, the deaths are still less after the US invasion than under the Saddam Era (and those are the numbers the UN can officially confirm). So yes this is what America is all about, standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. So as the above person mentioned, that we should leave it to the people who have been there, here it is.

    Let me point out that “terrorists” were not in Iraq until the US invaded. It is abundantly clear now that there was no evidence of the weapons Bush was looking for. Bush invaded their country and that’s what caused this violence. They want us out of their nation, and quite frankly, if someone invaded us for a lie as a reason, we’d want them out too.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong, and wrong. I’ve elaborated on this in other posts and at length, so I won’t do so again. If you’re too lazy/stupid to look it up yourself, I won’t bother.
