It is, however, much more dangerous for our Iraqi partners. My Iraqi interpreters were in constant fear of death. I tried to track down some of my old Iraqi interpreters and found that one had since been burned alive in her house with her family. Make no mistake, these people are patriots. They understand are at stake. They are also baffled by the rhetoric of the MSM. They see us (military) killing ourselves for the mission and then see the looney lethargy of the left as broadcast continually by the MSM. When asked, I couldn't find a way to describe it that they would understand. Probably because I don't freakin' understand it myself.
I guess that I don't have a lot to add except that we are doing the right thing. BTW, I now have something like 45 months in combat over my career... heh, at least my Dad is impressed.
