I was very impressed with Sunday's NY Times Op-Ed by the 7 guys from 82 Airborne, The War As We Saw It. It is so utterly devastating to the Bush Regime tissue of lies regarding the Iraq "surge," that the collaborationist traditional media has studiously avoided a discussion of this important document. I recommended it on Sunday and Congressman Jerry McNerney re-iterated that same point today.

But these 7 are hardly the only military men coming back from Iraq telling the truth about Bush's and BeTrayus' lies. They may be able to fool dummy congressmen like Boehner, Baird or Mahoney, but the guys on the ground ain't buyin' it. A DWT regular turned me on to a blog called Army of Dude, written by a guy stationed over in Iraq. He's not regurgitating Rovian talking points and he's not even just tip-toeing around the Greed Zone; he's reporting on how it is on the ground, a place George Bush's expensively clad footsies have never touched. Try this on for size:
Next month we’ll be the first unit home that completed a three month extension. We were one of few to see Iraq before and after the surge. If the media got anything right, it was that the surge failed. The idea, as birthed in a bloody, mucous-y blob of counter production by General Petreaus, is quite simple on paper, impossible to execute in a meddling reality. The concept is that combat troops would move from their huge bases that housed obscene luxuries like beds, flushing toilets and running water, and into outposts within the most dangerous parts of the city. The key to it all would be 24/7 interaction with Iraqi Army and a constant presence among the Iraqi citizens, giving them confidence in the mission of coalition forces. The building we picked used to be a whiskey distillery, and we’ve been busy putting up concrete barriers and wire around it. A house was too close to where the wall was supposed to be, so engineers blew it to smithereens and sent the family packing. The father owned the plot for forty years and comes by every so often to collect the useful bricks left scattered a hundred yards in every direction. Before he entered once, I patted his seventy year old frame down like a common criminal.

You want to know what's going on in Iraq? Forget the Petraeus Report the White House is writing. Read Army of Dude.

My friends and I like to buy Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold, because the potbs gold is very useful to upgrade equipment. Only your equipment becomes better, then you can win this game. In potbs Doubloon, you can buy everything you want in this game. Yesterday is my birthday, so my friends bought me some potbs money as gifts. I am so happy. They understand me so well, it is my favorite thing to buy potbs Doubloon.
