Blogging Soldier in Iraq...Interview with The Real Ugly American

My very good friend The Real Ugly American has a great post up. It is an interview with Sgt. T.F. Boggs who blogs at T.F. Boggs A sample of TRUA's interview:
TRUA: "Can you tell us some of the things you have seen American Soldiers do for Iraqi children?"

Sgt. Boggs: I have seen soldiers do great things for Iraqi children from everything to giving them food, candy, clothes, toys, and wheelchairs. I have seen soldiers play games with them, hold them, hug them, smile and laugh with them. We see that Iraqi children need our help and we are willing to go to great lengths to provide for them. As soldiers we get aid to drive, shoot, build, and keep order but we help children because it is the morally right thing to do, it is completely selfless and I believe the children know or will come to realize that.

Read this entry from Sgt. Boggs, it should make you think about what is really going on with our troops in Iraq.

It is a terrific interview and I hope you will read it all as well as read all of Sgt. Boggs efforts.

GM, Ralph Peters and a very few others seem to actually go out to see what the Iraqis are doing and what our soldiers and Marines are doing. All reports by clear eyed-observors is, on balance, very positive. Will we "win"? I don't know. However, we've (in many respects) already won. Doing the right thing, despite naysayers...maybe especially with winning, in a moral sense.

Most journalists, it would appear, send Iraqi stringers out as it is too dangerous for pale-faced journalists (are there many African-American reporters who go to the war zones? Why not?) to venture out. The stringers bring back film of all the bombings and other "action" shots.

"Blood leads". So, most of the good works go un, or under, reported.

My take.
