There's still a war going on

I was watching Hannity and Colmes last night (Monster Garage was on a commercial) and they had a director that had filmed a documentary with some troops in Iraq along with one of the soldiers featured in the film. Well, between Hannity's attempts to get the director to admit his anti-war bias was a pretty interesting interview. The soldier talked about coming home and seeing some story about pet care on the front page of the paper with news from Iraq buried on page 13. He seemed bothered by this and said regardless of your position on the war, it is what should be America's focus, and I agree.

Since the "catastrophically successful" elections and with the Gannon mess going on, I haven't seen nearly as much talk about the war lately. Meanwhile, people are still getting killed everyday, and Iraq is still a mess, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't show a lot of signs of getting better. With talk of Iran, Syria, and North Korea, it seems that many people have forgotten about Iraq, and I think that's sad. We should remain focused on the war in Iraq, whether you are for it or against it, we shouldn't put it behind us until our soldiers can put it behind them as well. And even then, there will likely be a mess for the Iraqis to clean up.
