So there’s something that i’ve been wondering ever since the London bombings. While Ally and Kristie were in London i asked them what Londoners said about Americans. The general concensus was “Americans are stupid and Bush sucks” basically because of the war on terrorism and/or our presence in Iraq. Now that London has experienced the same type of horror we did……what are they saying? Have any of the responses changed? I was just curious since I have never ever been a fan of war, but after 9/11 i was really hoping we’d kick someone’s ass.
We had a soldier come in to the pharmacy today. He was on his way to set up a party for a squadron (?) of soldiers that are returning from Iraq tonight ^_^ We didn’t talk long but he had some very interesting views on the occupancy of Iraq. It just made me realize that while we’re here wondering “Why the hell are there still troops over there? Bring them home!” , they have to worry about the iraqi people. They need to make sure the government is secure and that the people are safe. What would happen if a civil war broke out? Or if the insurgents gained control? We’re not trying to control Iraq, we’re just trying to give them a little direction. Kinda like a parent to a kid. We’re older and have had more experience, and we’re just trying to pass it on.
