War is hell

People have been complaining about the heat is 30 degrees hotter in Iraq and Afghanistan and our troops carry packs and body armor. Quit complaining.

Did you know people die in war? NO? It happens. Every day unfortunately. Most of the time, it is the bad people, and sometimes a few of the good people, but too often, it is the people trying to get out of the way. It is not right, not good, not nice. But war is hell and as long as people give aid by allowing bad guys to hide among them...well, more people than ought are going to get hurt.

Now, I am not saying that every time a fighter runs into a residence the people are aiding them, but you do have to wonder how many times an IED goes off on the same section of street before someone quietly turns in the house where aid is really give.

I hope it happens more than I hear. It does appear to be happening more. Apparently, the Sunnis that have been calling for insurrection and terror against our troops for the last 3 years have gotten the message that when you keep the lion's cage in your bedroom, it is not safe to dangle your feet off the bed....

I support our troops and hope they soon can get out of hell....because sooner than you can imagine, it is going to be freezing there again...
