    I also concur. Without you and your fellow journalists, we are not truly free!

    this is true i have all my gear. i have been glade to have that gear many times. when i first started i was covering more guerrilla warfare where it is on the ground. there is so much more air power used today as well.

    i have been surprised by how good some of the targeting can be. but not all.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    I just have the faded scars, and thankfully the memories have faded as well.

    i am intolerant of ignorance and you are at the head of the list.

    the troops who were already enlisted at the time of the first strike could be excused for their actions as they were following the lie. those that reenlisted or came once the truth was revealed i have no respect for. they should of at that point said well George have a nice war. many you can get your oil buddies to help you out with this one.



    Questions.


    1. Are you no longer an American citizen? How did you do this?

    2. Do you hold your new home country (france?) at ll culpable for using the oil for food program as a giant embezzelment scheme, in fact partially causing the war in Iraq?



    Thank you.

    i have been living in Israel under a French passport. we are leaving at the end of the week and will be in South Afrika. we spent 6 months of 08 living there. it was a great time. we made a lot of friends and did so much. the land is beautiful. the poverty is alarming in certain parts. there is work to do. like any nation it has it's corruptions and struggles. it does tend to mind it's own business. it is not all about oil dollars. it does not send troops out to nation build. it does not have a huge impact on the world.

    what it does have are a struggling mass of people that work each day to try and scratch out a living. it has kids that have grown up to become families of gangs. there is an entire sub culture that sleeps in the fields and in unused sewer pipes that are set to be laid.

    there are a tremendous number of abandoned children. i do not see all the anti abortion people running to this nation to adopt. i see these kids getting weak and worn.

    it is not America. it does not have a huge military. it does like America have a lot of good well meaning people. the leaders as all leaders have their issues.

    i can do a lot of good in South Afrika. i have been lucky in life and can help some of those poor. i can maybe bring in some others that would help with such a task. we will never turn away a hungry person from our door. we will never arm ourselves against the rabble. we will just be to do what we can. that is the best i can do.

    we did adopt a beautiful little girl from there her name is Kanshieka. she is such a princess. her parents are unknown, she was found on the streets at about 17 months. she is around 2 years old and will have a home for the first time since she was found months ago. we pick her up on Monday of next week. we look forward to that.
    wow! a 2 yr old baby girl, i'm sure you will love her very much.

    I view journalists the same way that Sherman did:

    "I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are. If I killed them all there would be news from Hell before breakfast.

    With a few exceptions, that's the same level of journalism that exists today.





    I learned to hate them in the 1st Gulf war.... I would do everything, I mean everything to make sure my picture was not taken.... Sometimes it wasn't very pleasant... I hate the press.

    I have to disagree with you and Sarge here, sir. The press, while annoying sometimes, has helped bring to light many leaders and soldiers who have commited war crimes and performed poorly.

    Abu Ghraib?
    Steven Green?
    Michael Steele?

    Plus much of the press has provided many, many good press releases about things we did over there. I had embedded press more than once and the stories that were published were always positive in nature and really good PR for the Army and my unit.
