What did you do during the Iraq Occupation, Daddy?

The New York Times reports that Insurgent Bombs Directed at G. I.'s Increase in Iraq. No shit?

Of course, hard core Iraq Occupation supporters will consider this good news. It proves that the US really does have enemies in Iraq and the occupation should continue until Hell freezes over because doing right really has no end. The simple corrective of getting out eludes the blood thirsty.

The radical right has not yet put a face on the Occupation since the passing of Zarqawi. Bad news being what it is, I expect a new face won't be long in coming. Or will we have another round of "9/11 changed everything?" In a way, it did. We still have George Bush as our President, one of the most regrettable episodes in American history.

Meanwhile, there is still no news of people breaking down the doors of the recruiting offices to enlist in the occupation. In some ways, 9/11 didn't change jack shit. That is something the war loving radical right won't face up to either. They can talk the talk, but they can't walk the walk. Supporting the Iraq Occupation is a grand idea if you don't have to fight in it or pay for it.

Sorry, but that is how pissed off I am about the whole deal. I don't call the Iraq Occupation a lost cause. Calling it a cause would dignify the event more than it deserves.

The radical right is fond of branding those who oppose the Iraq Occupation as cowards and traitors. I hope I live to see the day when everyone who supports the Iraq Occupation realizes they participated in the willful and wholesale slaughter of damned fine troops. And I hope their children ask them what they did during the Iraq Occupation.
