Why We Fight

Have you ever seen this photograph? It was taken by Michael Yon, a blogger-journalist who has been in and out of Iraq quite a few times. If this doesn't win a Pulitzer Prize, it will be a crime. Please visit Michael Yon's blog as often as you can; his posts are amazing.

Mr. Yon snapped this photo in the aftermath of a double suicide/car bombing in Mosul in May, 2005. The man in the photo is Major Mark Bieger, U.S. Army. He is holding a little Iraqi girl who was mortally wounded by the bombs set off by the terrorists. Being a father myself, including a little girl who is due in April, I can scarcely look at this photo with tearing up.

The next time some leftist moonbat talks about how we need to leave Iraq, ask them if they want to leave Iraq to the human cockroaches who would turn the country into an operating base where they could do something like this not just in Iraq, but elsewhere as well.

Good Day to You, Sir

It's a shame that these types of photos never make it out into circulation for everyone to see. Maybe if more people could see them they would understand what it is we fight for. But hasn't this always been a problem throughout the years?? T
