There's other things happening in this world besides Katrina


U.S. Army soldiers from Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 508th Infantry (Airborne), prepare to move out on another mission in Mangritae, Afghanistan, on June 25, 2005. The soldiers are patrolling the area and searching for remaining members of the Taliban.

The rotor wash of a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter kicks up clouds of dust as U.S. Army soldiers scan the perimeter of a landing zone for possible hostile forces near Baghdad, Iraq, on Aug. 26, 2005. The soldiers are with the 1st Battalion, 41st Infantry Regiment, 3rd Brigade, 1st Armored Division.

Thanks for the photos Alice. I posted the photo of the troops building a playground, also taken by Sgt. Cooley and got a note from him.

I wish I could access the DOD site that has all these photos. I know there are many stories that we are not being told by the press because they don't show us in a bad light, or make Bush look bad.

In this case, it shows the military in a good light. And if you noticed, the photo was not taken by anyone in the press, but someone that is actually there on the ground with these guys.

I just don't want them to be forgotten, that's all.

well as we all know, the lack of playgrounds is what made saddam hussein such a mean son of a bitch. now that our troops are building both playgrounds and schools terrorism should come to an abrupt end.

car bombs, suicide bombers, a weak police force, meaningless constitution and civil war be damned, iraq has playgrounds! take that, liberals!

These are the heroes that the MSM hates. Their bravery, common sense and patriotism are an inspiration.

haha david vance you dumb bastard, no one hates them. grow up, get a brain, shit...

oh, it should be "there are other things..." not "there is"

there is would be singular, but "things" is plural.

Oh Hi Alice,

I see you have English majors here! Oh ick! You know what!? I don’t care!

Great pics Alice. Thanks.

I can't believe that one of your whacko contributors managed to mock the building of a playground for those beautiful Iraqi children. Sure beats the baby jails they USED to be in under SoDamn Insane. I see he also mocks the Iraqi and their democratic struggle toward completing a constitution. Among other things. Then he calls a very intelligent person a dumb bastard. Stevie really knows how to debate, doesn't he?

childish yipping is all the left has. they sure as hell can't tell people what they "think" without being laughed at by the "norms".

oh yeah, nice blog

well you can take the iraqi constitution for what it is; the application of islamic law as the law of the land for a "democratic" country. not only does the "constitution" recognize the religion of islam as the only religion there is but it also focuses on islamic holy law as a foundation for most of its principles. couple this to the complete exclusion of the sunnis and you have a terrific document.

i love the fact that we're building new playgrounds and schools and whatever else we're building but if half the country is without a job, and half the country doesn't even have electricity and running water i'm not sure what the point of having a new playground and school is. maybe as a reward should you escape the car bomb, run out of your dark house and then wash yourself in a nice running well.

and i called david a dumb bastard because his comment was one a dumb bastard would make. i would think you guys are intelligent enough to recognize a stupid fucking comment for what it is.

viva bush!

Hey Alice, do you ever read "gut rumbles"? Acidman got so tired of his trolls that he started editing their comments and making them say all sorts of interesting things..... *evil grin*

Just thought I would pass that on to you.

I think I have him linked as "Acidman". He's very grouchy! *grin* I absolutely adore him though. He's fun.

I don't hear the libs whine endlessly about Afghanistan's constitution. Exerpts reveal how the religion of Islam is tied to the constitution of Afghanistan.

Article 1 [Islamic Republic]
Afghanistan is an Islamic Republic, independent, unitary and indivisible state.

Article 2 [Religions]
(1) The religion of the state of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is the sacred religion of IslamState_Religion.
(2) Followers of other religions are free to exercise their faith and perform their religious rites within the limits of the provisions of law.

Article 3 [Law and Religion]
In Afghanistan, no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam.

Article 7 [International Law]
(1) The state shall abide by the UN charter, international treaties, international conventions that Afghanistan has signed, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

(2) The state prevents all types of terrorist activities, production and consumption of intoxicants (muskirat), production and smuggling of narcotics




Apparently the term "islamic republic" doesn't an Iran make.

You are not certain what reconstruction the coalition forces have been working and achieving, yet you state with certainty the level of unemployment and utilities in Iraq.

Hmmm..

Do you work for CNN? AP? Reuters?

or did you cut and paste this from a thread at the DU?
