I am about half way done with “My War… Killing Time In Iraq” and I must say that I am repeatedly shocked at what this guy got away with blogging about. I think that in the last couple of years there has been a new rule in the military that says you can not have a MySpace page or a blog while active duty. Well if that is true, I can see why they made this rule because there is tons of stuff about missions and that little event about shooting up a mosque that is not what the U.S. Government wants us little minded U.S. citizens to know about.
I do wonder how this guy became such a huge hit in the bloggesphere without really advertising the fact that he had a blog in the first place. His writing is good though and I have enjoyed reading this book so far. I definitely don’t think that the out-houses at Girl Scout camp in fourth and fifth grade where that bad after reading about the make-shift bathrooms these troops had to use for days on end. DISGUSTING!!!!!!! Reading about it caused me to almost throw up in my mouth!
What do you think of this book so far and what U.S. Forces are doing in the Fight Against Terror in the Middle East? I will say that living in Okinawa and watching Armed Forces Network Television proves that the U.S. press does not tell the whole story about what good things our military is doing for the people of Iraq and Afghanistan.
