Iraq...5 years and counting.

First I would like to say thank you to everyone who’s served in Iraq and Afghanistan for that matter...you have my respect and my heart.

I've been listening to NPR, flipped on the TV a couple times, driven by a few protests and i keep seeing/hearing the same things... 2/3s of Americans don't think the war was a justified...however, five years ago 70% of Americans supported the invasion. Everywhere I look, I see negativity...we shouldn't have invaded, this war is wrong, what was the point, support the troops-followed by bring them home now, innocent civilians are dying (i don't argue this), and it is a waste of money (reality check, that money wouldn't have been pumped into anything Americans really "need"), etc. i have yet to see ANYTHING positive be reported today (or any day for that matter)...absolutely nothing...no one wants to report any of the good that has happened overseas...but lets be honest, who really wants to hear that anyways? the average American enjoys complaining...i suppose that is what we are breed to do now...complain, find ways to make money and spend it...i'm glad i'm not part of your world. i guess you can look at today as being a failure for the United States...or look at it how i do...regardless if you think the war was justified and if US troops did their job or not...the Iraqis are not under the control of a horrendous dictator and i personally think this is a huge accomplishment...every single Soldier went to Iraq with one common thought, we all just wanted to make it home...however, our home isn't so welcoming and thankful for our service... and with that i say, FUCK YOU America.

Careful, GI Kate, with posts like that you may fall into the small minority of Americans capable of independent thought.
