Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

A picture to ponder
by Cordeiro

A US Soldier comforts a little girl attacked by insurgents in Mosul.

Will this picture get anywhere near the coverage as did Abu Graib?

Take a look, and read the background article. If nothing else, this picture shows the difference between American Soldiers and Iraqi Thugs. Please stop referring to them as insurgents. Anyone who drives a VBIED into an area filled with children has found a way to slide past Miserable Vomitous Mass on the scale of humanity.

If ever a picture could make a man cry.....is anyone truly surprised at the actions of this gallant soldier? As we all know, this is the true picture of what we are doing in Iraq. God bless this man and all those like him.

I don't mean to sound callous, but war is hell, and bad stuff happens, no matter which side you're on.

Do you think Hiroshima and Nagasaki were military targets that didn't have any  innocent civilians?

One soldier holding one child has about the same effect as one detainee being brutally tortured by one contractor. What is more important to me is seeing many people cheering or protesting an occupation. That and not individual personable pictures of isolated acts should be what real news is about.

We use words like honor, code, loyalty...we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain this concept to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom provided by these brave peacemakers, then questions the manner in which they provide it! I'd rather you just said thank you and went on your way.
