OF COURSE WE
WHY DIDN'T WE
WOULDN'T TELL US!
Because a Bush- hating media and Democratic Party would
rather see the world blow up than lose their power.
Instead of shouting these accomplishments from every rooftop,
they would rather show photo's of what a few perverted malcontent
soldiers have done in prisons in many cases never disclosing
the circumstances surrounding the events.
Instead of showing our love for our country, we get photos
of flag burning incidents at Abu Ghraib and people throwing
snowballs at presidential motorcades.
The lack of accentuating the positive in Iraq serves only
one purpose, it undermines the world's perception of the
United States and our soldiers.
