DISENGAGEMENT

This is a must-read analysis of Kerry's intentions in Iraq: The Disengagement

And -- handful of oddballs I've talked to notwithstanding -- veterans and military families seem to support our current President (via Vodkapundit). I think it means that veterans and families want what's best for all of our servicemembers, and they don't seem to think Kerry's plan is what's best.

ALa71 writes about "adopting" a Soldier. My friends and I were talking about this the other day, about how strange it would be to not know someone downrange and to only know Soldiers who warblog. I said that, with everyone my husband knows, I have to monitor news about Tikrit, Mosul, Baqubah, and Najaf. I know more than enough people down there to keep me busy; it's hard to imagine that half of America doesn't know anyone in Iraq or Afghanistan. (And sometimes the ones who do only vaguely have a sense of "yeah, that one guy from my high school is in the Marines or something.") Around here, everything we do or say or think is somehow attached to the war; it's hard to imagine life otherwise.

1 Personally, I find these people sad and unfortunately I know lots of them. All ages with no true connection to this war. They don't even read the warblogs cause it's just too much work and they are toooooo busy. I'm their only connection and sometimes I may lay it on thick but that's all that keeps this war real to them. It's very sad situation and sometimes it does get to me cause they don't feel a duty as an American to support our troops for all that they do and sacrifice. Think I'd better stop right there. LOL I could go on but I won't. Thanks and keep doing what you do.
