Some Great Pictures...

I posted something similar recently, but I decided to post again because another blogger,
Born Again Redneck, posted some I haven't seen. So, here is my updated post:

This made me proud to be American. But also angry.
Angry that Hollywood elites, while living in freedoms won, still blame America -
and her soldiers - first.
Angry that atrocities by the other side are ignored, while non-proven non-events by our side are used to smear our soldiers and our efforts.
Angry that screaming radicals get a mouthpiece and airtime, while average, grateful Iraqi citizens are ignored.
Angry that negative press for Bush seems to be worth slandering and spoiling the reputation of American heroes.
I am not ignorant. War is hell. But...

"War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
