The Huffington Post – a very dark place

I happen to stumble into the trash heap called The Huffington Post following a link about the Black Water guys that were killed in Baghdad.

That has to be one of the sorriest sites on the internet. Not only does it prove how little Miss Arianna knows (one of those educated yet ignorant people) but those who respond to her contributor’s blogs must live under rocks – in wet, soggy mud.

There was post after post celebrating the demise of the Black Water guys. Either the average age of a poster there is 12 or the average IQ must be about the same. None of you are worth the Iraqi mud on any contractor’s boots. For shame – not only are you people moral cowards and intellectual zeroes, you are sniveling shameful dregs hiding behind your phony names and hidden emails. The wheel goes round and it will get to idiots like you. I can’t wait!

The last soldier killed

I think Iraq will be over this year. Either we will whip Sadr, smile and leave or, alternatively Malaki will not live up to his end of the bargin (more likely) and we leave.

The question is how many die while the options work themselves out. Who was the last to die in Vietnam? I guess we should know that. Who will be the last to die in Iraq? In any case, who ever it is will be just as important as the first. Was it worth it? I think we will know in the next few years.

 BTY, the last to die in Vietnam (officialy) was Army Col. William B. Nolde, a 43-year-old father of five. He was killed Jan. 27, 1973, near An Loc.
