MISSING

I have to chuckle at the fact that I learned about a new milblogger via an Iraqi blog. Omar pointed out In Iraq for 365, where I found a great post called "From the smells to toilets to flirting, I miss America".

And for the anti-war types who think Iraq was all kite-flying before we got there, check out this sentence:

Logan’s story is both compelling and sad. His uncle was killed by members of Saddam Hussein’s regime for speaking Turkish in Baghdad.

Killed for speaking a foreign language. Remind me again why we shouldn't have invaded Iraq?

1 "Killed for speaking a foreign language. Remind me again why we shouldn't have invaded Iraq?" Well, to play liberal's advocate, they would say "that wasn't the reason Bush used! He said WMDs and al Qaeda!" Which, to quite an extent, is true. If it was just a dictatorship, would we have sent your husband and a 1/2 million other husbands and wives to risk life and limb in Iraq, when the world is littered with dictators or ruling juntas, some worse than Saddam? Of course, when you take dictator+al Qaeda ties+WMDs+9/11 fears+17 UN resolutions, you have a very unique situation. Even then, I have friends and family members who still don't think the loss of one US soldier was worth it. Not when could have just flattened the place, like Bette says, "from a distance".
