Skip to comments.The Truth about Iraq!
Posted on 02/24/2005 5:26:06 PM PST by SteveYoung
We have set up a site with many letters direct from Iraq. These Letters Home tell the truth about the good things our solders are doing today in Iraq!
Frustrated with all the bad news on Iraq, a group of patriots stateside developed The Real Iraq. This was the result of our now number one contributor simply writing a "letter home". On his first tour Randy Fritz, would send home an email letter, telling a story of the good soldiers were doing in Iraq. From the complex drilling for, and purification of water, handing out seeds to a community, or a simple toy to a Iraq child, the stories are captivating!
Way to go!
Nice website, I bookmarked it and will check in often
Check this out
Thanks guys, I felt funny about posting our own site, but the National (and World) press does not tell the truth about what is going on in Iraq.
How long has your site been up ?
Thanks for the ping Howlin.
What do you think about Jay Fiedler being cut by the Dolphins?
Excellent site, thanks for the ping. I may send to my local newsfaker
Awesome site! GREAT job! This one gets a bookmark for future visits.
Thanks for the ping! Looks like a good site!
Thanks. BTW, Congratulations on the Hall of Fame selection. :-)
Excellent - I've already read February's letters, which are great by the way, and posted a comment. Great work and thanks for the link.
When the first few emails came in from Randy, I wanted to suit up and head out. I was ready to go, after all I had a lot to offer! I was fit, could protect myself, Iraq was a country about to explode with opportunities. I was a strategic thinker with the ability to implement, a proven track record of managing companies. Even the successful one I manage now, founded 16 years ago as a bootstrap operation. A private land and sea pilot that could learn to fly any aircraft with the proper training. Surely I could help a country to grow, a country to learn, even guide a country to freedom.
I did not have a clue. I am not indestructible.
It wasnt about ME it was about THEM. It was about the brave men and woman that could protect themselves, that did not have to loose 20 pounds, that did not have to learn how to use a 9 millimeter. I would just be in the way, a liability, a millstone that would be someone elses problem.
So what could I do? I can do anything. What would be the best thing to do?
Randy needed a voice, the troops were doing great things and the press only talked about the bad things. We were fighting for the hearts and minds of the Iraq people and we are winning! No one knows it. We needed to publish a simple letter home.
The right thing to do was create TheRealIraq.org
I hope you enjoy it, I hope you contribute by writing and commenting, THEY are wrong, you and I are right!
Git over here and read this, twerp !
