With my youngest brother in Iraq, it's been a rough few days with all the renewed fighting going on in Fallujah, especially hearing that 12 US troops were killed. Not knowing if my brother is ok or not is nerve wracking, to say the least. There have been many, many prayers for him as well as all the troops fighting to keep us all safe.

I found this link on another site that I visit and wanted it to share it with all of you. This is what the biased media doesn't want you to see. They only want to show death and destruction, and refuse to show the good that our brave men and women are doing for the Iraqi people. There are a lot of links and some really great reads there, so if you have the time, please do so. You won't be disappointed.

Pictures from Iraq

You won't see those pictures in the "Lamestream Media" that's for sure. Dan Rather & friends would have you believe that 99 and 98/100ths% of Iraq hates our guts. The media tried to do everything within (and out of) their journalistic boundries to shift the last election process to Senator Kerry. By showing these pictures it would look like Iraq is a far better success story than reported nightly on the news.

When you come down to it, the insurgency is basically a small percentage of the Sunni Muslims who were the benefactors of Saddam's generosity and the Muslim radicals that slithered over the border from both ends of Iraq to fight a new Jihad. Well they got their wish. Fallujah is ringed by the Marines and the insurgents will shortly be meeting their maker.

Smiling children with US soldiers does not sell papers or make good leading stories. Blown up humvees with soldiers lying bloody next to it does. Fox in my opinion is the only network that does show fair & balanced coverage, and they got slammed for being pro-Bush. Nobody stopped to consider that the other 5 leading news channels had slanted their views towards the DemocRATs and Kerry. But how will you get to see the real Iraq with the leftists controling the papers & TV? Read below...............HC

Why Democrats are tagged as the party without values

According to the New York Times, Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano, reflecting on her party's recent losses in the presidential, Senate and House elections, asked: "How did a party that is filled with people with values - and I am a person with values - get tagged as the party without values?"

As one who was raised a Democrat and became a Republican only 10 years ago, I would like to answer Gov. Napolitano's question as honestly as she posed it.

Gov. Napolitano, your party does indeed have very many people with values in it. But the Democratic Party is no more representative of the average Democrat's values than the National Council of Churches is of the average Protestant's values. Both are far to the left of their membership.

Official RNC Site - Support the GOP
You can work with President Bush and a Republican Congress to fully enact their compassionate conservative agenda. Learn how you can help promote the president's message today.

Here is the Democratic Party as most Americans, including this John F. Kennedy liberal - a New York City born and raised, Jewish, Ivy League-educated intellectual who lives in Los Angeles - see it.

To most Americans, Michael Moore is a Marxist who has utter contempt for most of his fellow Americans, who goes abroad and tells huge audiences how stupid and venal his country is, and in his dishonest propaganda film, portrays the American military as callous buffoons. Yet, this radical was given the most honored seat at the Democratic Party convention in Boston, next to former President Jimmy Carter.

To most Americans, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are race-baiting demagogues. Yet they are heroes to the Democratic Party. Most Americans do not see their country as the bigoted and racist nation regularly depicted by both black and white Democratic leaders.

To most Americans, a man who wears women's clothing to work is a pathetic person in need of psychotherapy. To the Democratic Party, he is a man whose cross-dressing is merely another expression of multiculturalism. The California Legislature, which is entirely controlled by Democrats, passed a law prohibiting any employer from firing a man who shows up to work wearing women's clothing.

To most Americans, Eminem is a vulgar nihilist who poisons young Americans' minds. To John Kerry he was a man whose anti-Bush hate video was worthy of endorsement.

To most Americans, obscenity-filled evenings should be restricted to R-rated films or a Las Vegas comedy act, not a major party's fund-raiser attended by its candidates for president of the United States. To Democrats, those who object to such evenings are regarded as judgmental, hypocritical and narrow-minded.

To most Americans, Hollywood stars are regarded as terrific to watch in films, but also as narcissistic ingrates when, between private jet trips to Cuba and Cannes, they express their contempt for traditional America. That the Democrats have a veritable monopoly on support from folks like Sean Penn and Robert "Castro-is-a-great-leader" Redford may give Democrats a heady feeling, but for tens of millions of Americans, it merely reinforces their belief that the Democratic Party shares Hollywood's values. Even the New York Times, in a post-election analysis, wrote of "the possibility that activist entertainers' fervent endorsements might have cost Mr. Kerry the election."

To most Americans, the American military is not only heroic - it is regarded as more important to safeguarding freedom than any other human institution, including the American Civil Liberties Union, the United Nations or the university, to cite three major Democratic Party affiliates. To virtually the entire Left, which includes the Democratic Party, the military is, at best, a necessary evil. Otherwise, the overriding doctrine is "Make love, not war." That is why Harvard still refuses to allow ROTC training - and it is unlikely that either of the Massachusetts senators even finds that wrong, let alone as reprehensible as most Americans do.

To most Americans, gays are fellow Americans who happen to be homosexual and who should be accorded the same respect any fellow American is accorded. But most Americans also believe that America should retain the millennia-old definition of marriage as man-woman. They regard liberal judges who take it upon themselves to redefine marriage with contempt. And these judges are identified with the Democrats.

Whatever their views on abortion and abortion rights, the vast majority of Americans view the abortion of a viable fetus-baby (partial-birth abortion) as immoral. The Democratic candidate and his fellow Democrats repeatedly voted against a ban on this practice.

Gov. Napolitano, I hope that this short list answers your question about how it is that your party has gotten tagged as "the party without values." Indeed, the real question, as this observer sees it, is how has this party retained so many people who have traditional American values?

Dennis Prager, one of America's most respected and popular nationally syndicated radio talk-show hosts, is the author of several books and a frequent guest on television shows such as Larry King Live, Politically Incorrect, The Late Late Show on CBS, Rivera Live, The Early Show on CBS, Fox Family Network, The O'Reilly Factor and Hannity & Colmes.

Thank you Kate. I serve in the Air Force Reserve and completed a two year tour in July 03. My Security Forces unit was activated on 09/14/01. We had guys on the ground in Bagdad when the airport was secured. I presently serve with a medical unit after having enough of the gung ho stuff. We are getting these type of photos back from our folks over there. You are so right. The media does not want the public to see this type of photo. I'll never understand why. Just show that picture of that medic holding that small child a few times to some of these radical pukes who call our guys/girls baby killers and occupiers. A picture says a thousand words. You are also right. War is not pretty. There are bad times over there as well, and we lose folks everyday. It's a tragedy, but I truly believe in my heart that it's the right thing to do, us being there. I feel that we are needed, wanted by most Iraqi's, and are doing a great service to not only that country, but the world. Some will say that I'm a brainwashed GI. That's their opinion, and they have a right to it. I say to folks like that, you are able to have that opinion and express it publicly because of what my brothers and sisters in the military do. We protect their :rose: right to say and do pretty much as they please. Also here as police officers, LEO's of all types, you folks do the same thing here in our country. Keep doing what you guys do. I'm one of you however my hat is also off to you. Kate my family and I will also pray for your brother, his safe return, and for strength for you and your family. Thanks again for the photos. Great job!

Don't forget those people up in afganistan and other hotspots. then there are the lucky few of us who bounce between both conflicts. I feel ur pain katey, and so does my family. I have a cousin (who is more like a younger brother) deployed from the RI Guard, and my family has me and him to worry about. I haven't heard from him in a while and i don't know if he is ok & I'msure he is concerned about me.
