Una considerazione sulla sgrena. Dal filmato mandato in onda vengono fuori delle incongruenze : Lei afferma che i terroristi le hanno impedito di visitare Falluja. Perchè?
A) se erano veri “partigiani” avrebbero fatto tutto il possibile per far conoscere lo scempio di civili
B) se erano americani, visto che l’avevano rapita e volevano ucciderla perchè non l’hanno fatto subito addossando così la colpa ai resistenti?
Questi due interrogativi si aggiungono ai due precedenti che ancora non hanno risposta.
Dal blog di una soldatessa volontaria in Iraq … (38 anni, due figli)
…I am saddened by the losses suffered by the 502nd of the 101st Airborne. I doesn’t really matter what unit you are in, the 101st is a proud and honored unit, and every loss regardless of the brigade is felt very deeply. Not all the soldiers like it here, but the majority of us believe in what we are doing. We see beyond the media reports, and beyond the casualities on both sides, to see the wonderful positive things that we are trying to bring the people of Iraq. That once there is security, we can return home and a real infra-structure is left behind in our place for them to build on and become a great and peaceful nation. I am proud to be a part of what I am doing, and pray that Americans at home continue to support us and believe in us. Despite your political beliefs, we the soldiers, believe in our efforts and see first hand the positive and welcomed things our efforts bring to your average Iraqi. The average Iraqi wants what we all want. For there to be security, a political process to take place so they can prosper and lead a normal safe life to raise their children in, and yes they want us to quickly provide this to them and go home, so that they don’t have to watch armed troops patrolling residental streets. I don’t blame them I wouldn’t want that either.
I am fine, would rather be home for the holiday’s but we work hard on keeping each others spirits up. We are a lot closer than we ever were before, and are sincerely becoming more a band of brothers and sisters with each passing week. It is amazing the deepness and bond that forms between soldiers. It doesn’t require words, just presence and respect. If you have never felt it before, like me, it is something that you know will be with you forever. It really is something special.
In closing, I was sent this photo. It seemed appropriate to post it here and let everyone have that moment of silence in their lives to pay their final respects and say good-bye in their own way to PFC Martin and the other 101st soldiers, and all the soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice and “gave all” to their country.
