  • HELL SEES FIRST FROST OF THE SEASON

    Filed at 9:00 am under by dcobranchi

    The Faytteville Observer, hometown paper of the 82nd Airborne, finally (almost) sees the light.

    We’re caught between Iraq and a hard place, the latest National Intelligence Estimate tells us. It’s a deadly dilemma… We see both sides. Sen. Warner is right. So is Gen. Lynch. Does this mean we’re stuck there forever in the War Without End? That we continue to bury our dead for years to come, in service to a nation that refuses unity, as it has throughout most of its history?

    Army Gen. David Petraeus, the commanding general in Iraq, will be in Washington in a few weeks to deliver his report. It should — and it must — include a resolution, an endgame strategy.

    We cannot accept, or tolerate, an endless war.

    I’ve been harassing the editors for months, emailing them a copy of every article detailing when yet another local soldier gets killed in Iraq. This is the first time they’ve actually called for withdrawal, however timid the call.

    I’m going to keep on until the paper endorses a proposal to end the war.

    Well done.

    I’m thinking about the difference between accepting and tolerating. Is there a difference? I guess they don’t need us to accept it, just to tolerate it. Which people seem endlessly prepared to do.
