It's interesting to watch the various news agencies trying to figure out what we're doing in Fallujah. Are we attacking? Surrounding? Threatening? Is this the big showdown? Of course I know the answer, but I can't tell you. Sorry.
I can't tell you much about the OH-58D crashes from last night either. Looks like it was a midair, but that's just speculation on my part. We're still getting the details on that one. I obviously feel a particular sting whenever we have flight-related mishaps. We mourn the loss of those two brave troops and we hope the injured recover quickly...
As a counterbalance to the "rogue platoon" story, I recommend you check this out. It's the kind of medicine that will cure any doubts you may have about our military's willingness to get the job done.
What a Slimeball- an Edwards Outrage
Can John Edwards possibly sink any lower? Here's one of most telling articles I've yet read about the lawyer from Carolina. A small sample from Charles Krauthammer's masterpiece:
Politicians have long promised a chicken in every pot. It is part of the game. It is one thing to promise ethanol subsidies here, dairy price controls there. But to exploit the desperate hopes of desperate people with the promise of Christ-like cures is beyond the pale.
There is no apologizing for Edwards's remark. It is too revealing. There is absolutely nothing the man will not say to get elected.
The Swiftees are Back!
You must go check out their latest video- especially the second one- "Why?" See Bud Day (John McCain's roommate at the Hanoi Hilton) with his Medal of Honor around his neck and his passionate disdain for John Kerry on his sleeve- it'll give you goose bumps, I promise you.
I Got Links
I figured out a bit of HTML programming during this slow Sunday at the office. I think you'll find some cool stuff in my new "Links" column.
