If the media knew how much this hurts, how it's like a knife in the heart of every military family member, would they still do it? It's becoming obvious that no one in the media gives a damn about our servicemembers.

These photos sicken me. Each photo taken of a militant with weapons or worse,holding up an American soldier's helmut like a trophy, is like a slap in the face to every soldier and his family. How dare the American media be so callous and unAmerican! I'm outraged!!

They do realize that it hurts, that is exactly why they do it, and it is their intention to spark those feelings in you. It's called gritty, and hard-hitting, etc... etc...

It really spells out the scum that they have become, worse than ambulance chasing lawyers, it has become blood and body seeking reporters.

They biggest question I have, why are those that take these photos not tracked 24/7? Why are they allowed to operate in ways that are meant to incite jihadis, and demoralize the allies, and not treated as an enemy baffles me to the utmost extreme.

Information is a HUGE part of this war, and it is cedeing them that battlefield to not interfere with their operations.

This is the type of press coverage we here at home had during the Vietnam War. The liberal media has always prided itself on the fact that they, through their slanted reporting, were able to influence the outcome of the war in Vietnam by attacking it in their papers and on the TV in the U.S.

They are still at it and for the same reason. They are trying to scare the American people into pulling back from the War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The press today at the highest levels is still made up of the anti-war people of the 60's.

This time I hope they don't succeed. Our future as a country and as a people depend on knowing what the truth is and sidelining the fact spinners on the left.

One thing I am very thankful for this time around is that our military stands head and shoulders above the vietnam era. It could prove quite the difference. Vietnam took a decade to unfold, in another 8 years Iraq will not resemble Vietnam in the least.

I'm actually excited about the future.

I hope you are right.

What makes you feel so positive about the future in Iraq and the middle east at large?
