Did you hear? I almost skimmed right past the headline in my morning news feed. My TV doesn’t work, I sincerely dislike talk radio, and I don’t subscribe to the dead-tree editions of any major news source, so I could have a really goofed up perspective on the whole matter, but it almost seems as though this Iraq war is sneaking out the back door. Interesting.
Anyway, I’m glad it’s over. I support our troops and their efforts, but I support them coming home, too. Is the world a better place now because of our involvement there? I don’t know yet. But as a new friend of mine put it, “It is not unpatriotic to condemn war and proclaim peace.”
In the meantime, I grabbed some screenshots of the homepages for various news outlets today, mainly because I’m so surprised they aren’t making a bigger deal of this. FoxNews.com for example has a big headline about the GOP races in Iowa and nothing about the war ending. Interesting, eh?
Let's just hope the troops returning home don't get sent to Iran or Afghanistan
