I added a new blog....

....to my blogroll. I encourage you to visit Iraq: Perspective and Truth a blog by one of our fine military men, "Tbone", who has served two tours in Iraq. (And I couldn't find anything about him bitching about two tours or about Rumsfeld's "failures"!)

Read his Open letter to all Iraqis. It's long, but well worth the read. He places the "blame" (if you want to call it that - I see it more as a call to arms) squarely on the shoulders of Iraqis who, for whatever reason - fear, insouciance, ignorance or deliberate action - aid the terrorists by not opposing them. And who suffers? The Iraqis do.

In Aggression or restraint? he bemoans the disgraceful "coverage" of Iraq by our prostituted media.

In War against Islamic terrorism Tbone pointedly places the blame for all the events of the past 20 years on the shoulders of the terrorists - exactly where it belongs. Yes, he points out that our government (and by extension that is us because we are still a government of the people, for the people and by the people) slept for too long and excused too much, but we are awake now. We must never sleep again.

UPDATE: I should have told you about Tbone's first post as well. Like all his others, it's good reading and will give you a different perspective on what's going on halfway around the world.
