The War, Mostly

I was scrubbing my sink this morning......
Sinks are so very boring and worse they are disgusting, have you ever had to reach your hand down into the sink and "unplug" all the gung out? Its a great weight loss program, I usually can't eat for a week after.
I feel better.

I am actually going to rant here for a minute, so if you are the sensitive type who can't stand controversy, please just step away from the computer for a bit, its OK, go suck on a mint,
Now as for the rest of you,
WHATS UP WITH THE WORLD! A little more specifically put, I am so so mad at all the lame brained idiots in this country, people who watch the news and then go around quoting polls that are so inaccurate its not even funny, OK well a little funny at least to those of us who read the fine print underneath the poll

HEADLINE: 2 out of 3 people are gay! FINE PRINT: Based on a poll answered by 3 people.

HEADLINE: 90% of Americans are disgruntled with the war in Iraq FINE PRINT: Poll taken by the Democrats in a session of congress, Republicans were not invited.

Have you ever thought that reporters report what they report because its there job and hello whats this? Liberals OWN the media? You don't say, my, my!
OK everyone is entitled to there point of view but when you SHOVE narrowed minded crap into dumb imbeciles sitting on there couches drinking beer, well this isn't going anywhere because then I guess its partly there fault too, idiots need to get up and research the other side of the story, because the liberal media sure as $%*% aren't going to tell you.
I'm not done, the biggest thing that burns me up, and I don't swear, really I don't but this makes me come so grrrrr close,

OK breath Kristal, Breath...........

Its very sad that soldiers are dying, horrible, I can't imagine what I would do if someone close to me died in the war, I do have brothers in the military though and am very proud of them. To get to my point,
Every Bleeping night the reporter closes with a sob story of how many American soldiers died that day and in the last so many years in Iraq, how the war in Iraq is killing our soldiers, OK here's the part were everyone seems to think I get insensitive.
They (the Soldiers) signed up! They are "giving" there lives for something "they" believe in, the enlistment numbers have soared after 9/11 and its still going strong, don't you think, that the soldiers would like to hear something like this when they turn on the nightly news?
" Today 4 American Soldiers died fighting for there family and friends, for there country."
They could add every now and then the many Thousands that we have killed ( that's insensitive I know, but it needs to be pointed out that we aren't the only one with casualties, sometimes toes need to be stepped on) the work, successful work, they are doing, if you really support the troops, how about some happy stuff, some encouragement.
In World War 2 some Two Hundred Thousand Americans died, in a little under 4 years, more would have if we hadn't bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Horrible, the loss and death suffered by the Japanese in those bombings, but and to put it bluntly the fire bombs in Tokyo killed more people then both bombings combined, MILLIONS of Japanese were saved when the US Generals made the decision to use nuclear bombs, let alone millions of US soldiers, Sometimes brute force is needed, to save the most lives on both sides, to bring an end to a war, to take a stand as a country when its needed. This is merely a point I am trying to make, very few have died if you do comparisons, now I am not saying you should nuke Iraq, actually we are not in a war with Iraq anymore, we are in a war with terrorists, we are defending a country that is trying to bring freedoms that they do not as yet have, now maybe Iran, let the Israeli's have Iran I really wish our government would let the Israeli's loose, that would do a lot to ending the war and bringing troops home.
War is horrible, I do not speak from experience, but I do no people die, people die, it doesn't matter whose side you are on, even innocent people, bystanders will die, we have fought for out freedom, for justice even when it wasn't for ourselves, many times. War is horrible and in a war, People die.
Can we please be more sensitive? Can we be a little more upbeat, for our soldiers at least? You can't support the troops and not support the war, because then what are they dying for?
