Good News from the front. It appears that the “insurgents” are fighting among themselves. The Syrian-Iraqi border has been the site of many battles between different factions of the Jihadis. It also appears that the attacks on non-combatants and Iraqi police is losing favor among some members of the insurgency.(HAT TIP:Black5) Hopefully this means that the insurgents will pack up and go home soon, and we can get on with the task of rebuilding Iraq to the nation it deserves to be. Also so from Blackfive, a Marine’s good-bye letter. It is very touching and poignant. It almost brought tears to my eyes. After reading it, I feel damn proud to be American, because we have men like Mattek, who willingly put their lives on the line and even sacrifice them to protect and ensure our freedom. Thank you, Lance Corporal Mattek. Semper Fi!
On a similar note, Captain Z has been injured in the line of duty. It doesn’t seem to be very serious and we all hope he will make a full recovery. Go visit him and wish him well. Also send your prayers to his family who will need strength in this trying time. I want to wish him Godspeed and a speedy and full recovery.
More good news. Al-Jazeera, the Arabian news channel, has apparently gone berzerk or something, because they are running stories about the Coalition Forces and all the good they are doing in Iraq. Heh. I thought I’d never see the day that Al-Jazeera would actually like Americans. Wow, I’m just floored.(HAT TOP:Uncle Jimbo)
Arthur Chrenkoff has a post with pictures of all of the different Coalition Forces. Very cool and I’m glad that so many people had the resolve to come help liberate Iraq.(HAT TIP:MDG) Also, everyone go congratuolate Froggy on his 8 pound 10 ounce baby boy. Congrats Froggy! That’s all for now. Come back next time for more blogging goodness. I’ll be here. Bye.
