Kind of makes living in a free society like the United States and its Iraq War allies Great Britain, Spain, and Australia (apologizes to other nations not mentioned) sound very nice and special when thinking about what the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan are still coping with in the stabilization process. And then there are those in other countries, who would probably be ecstatic over what the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan now enjoy.
Furthermore, I am not going to start pointing fingers at anyone in the United States about playing 2004 election politics with "what and why" after giving millions in Iraq and Afghanistan freedom. My thoughts are for those young troops who have paid and will pay the ultimate price to maintain freedom on another's soil, as I believe most of us would do to protect the same right here!
Okay, I might be slightly impacted by my son serving in Iraq, but it shouldn't be too hard for even the bitter few to be thankful for the type of freedom we have . . . and even honor it on July 4th.
