more fun in the sun

I watched CNN for the first time in a while yesterday, guess there's more going on then I know about. We're constantly being told about OPSEC, but if you're looking to get information off someone out here that's writing a blog, forget it. We usually don't find out anything that's happening until we see it on the news, someone from home tells us about it or several days after it happens in Stars and Stripes. We just don't know. Of course we can put down what we're feeling and nice little stories about what we're doing that day, tell a bit what war is like the people back home. But we're in a basic communications blackout. I was amazed at what was going on when I saw CNN, I can tell you that's not the war front that I'm on. People are going nuts out there. Hope what our guys are doing right now works, what those Iraq's did to those contractors in Fallujah was asinine. I'm sorry there should be a few rules on basically being included in the human race. Are these the types of people we want running any country? I know history shows us that it's happened time and time again but maybe it's time to stop these kinds of people? I would understand it more if we were doing horrible atrocities like the former regime was doing but if we catch our guys doing evil and mean stuff, it's an automatic ticket straight to jail, do not pass go. Well if you'd been watching the news, there's much action happing right now. We lose all of our un-secure contact with the outside world whenever someone dies, usually for a day till the family is notified (good idea) or if we're implementing some big plan. Personally I think it's a good idea, myself I don't say anything till its old old news. In retrospect, the average Joe on the ground isn't told anything, just told to do things. Does the pawn know the big plan?

Found another blogger out here by way of Salam Pax, she takes on a very anti-war attitude and though I respect her views, but how dumb can you be? Check out the places she's going, madness! Fiona (I can't help thinking of the girl in the movie Eurotrip) keep your head down silly girl! She's going to places where I wouldn't dream of going with out a platoon behind me in light of the news this week. Keep your head down silly girl!
