    When Sgt. 1st Class James Martin deployed to Iraq, he had firm, negative opinions about the Iraqi people. Now, the Army National Guard soldier's perspective has changed. By U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class James Martin 230th Forward Support Battalion BAGHDAD, Iraq — Today I was sitting in the foyer of the clinic in Iraq. It had been a fairly busy day: a couple of cases of pink-eye, a few upper respiratory infections, many muscle strains, a broken leg. We treated about 50 soldiers and one Iraqi civilian who was trying to get something out of a car just before it...

    If you want to understand why the majority of Americans don't trust the Democrats on national security matters, take a look at remarks by Iowa Senator Tom Harkin as reported in Tuesday's Des Moines Register. In one fell swoop, Harkin proved himself to be morally clueless, strategically myopic, and politically expedient. Talk about hitting the trifecta. Harkin began by imploring members of the Bush Administration to envision a future Iraq by looking at the Vietnam of today: "Go visit Vietnam, as I've done several years ago, and find out how the people are getting along there," said Harkin, who voted...

"We Arabs need to revise our behavior towards the United States, as North Korea has done, to be respected," said the daily Babel, owned by President Saddam Hussein's elder son, Uday....
