I posted the above photograph on November 9th – over two weeks ago.Â This morning I FINALLY saw mention of this story on FOX news.Â Has it been on the other major news networks?Â I haven’t seen it.Â Perhaps I missed it – probably not.Â The MSM isn’t much interested in anything positive. Apparently their goal is to produce as much anti-American drivel as possible.Â
Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt should make everyone in America proud of our Armed Services.Â He’s home now – been home a couple months – and his wife says she’s not surprised at his actions in Iraq.Â He was always able to comfort their own children when they were babies.
What is frustrating to me is that this picture is months old.Â We get instant photos and newsÂ of anything negative happening in Iraq, but stories such as this – the stories that are truly representative of what our soldiers are doing over there – get little publicity, and the publicity they DO get is old news.
My nephew who is stationed in Baghdad,Â tells usÂ about children living in trash dumps and looking forward to the treats of candy and other gifts the soldiers give them from the packages they receive from home.Â Every single day our soldiers see the results of terrorism, and they’re fighting to save the Iraqui people from the even worse fate should we pack up and leave them to the whims of the terrorists.
I don’t understand how anyone who trashes our troops can live with his/her conscience.Â Our troops are decent and hard-working men and women who are dealing with ruthless murderers whose only goal is to deal death and terror to everyone.Â The fact of the matter is that the troop-bashers don’t have a conscience.
