Shades of Grey

My War blogged by CBFTW who, it would seem, is a soldier posted in Mosul. Guernica is one of his favorite Picasso's, in fact he even had a poster of it on his barracks room wall back in Fort Lewis. I guess CBFTW had to leave the poster back in Fort Lewis, otherwise he'd probably have to conceal it, that's if he wasn't court marshaled first for blogging William Sherman;

"I am sick and tired of war. It's glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell."
-William Tecumseh Sherman


I'm amazed he hasn't lost web access yet. His site has the most comprehensive disclaimer i've ever seen. Seeing is believing, as they say. (Pffft, would you believe it, the moment I typed "lost web access yet" my line actually dropped out. I'll be posting this later).

And one in Arabic; Iraq Forever by Fadhil. Noticed this blog a wee while ago but for some reason haven't linked it yet (perhaps i wondered about authenticity, although that hasn't stopped me from linking before.) Anyway, Zeyad gives his opinion here. Fadhil also blogs The Great Iraq in English, which is a collection of links and articles complementary to Iraq Forever.

CBFTW is interesting. Surprising views for a member of our all-volunteer military. But I suppose, whenever you get a few hundred thousand people, there are going to be a wide range of views.

Gentile Commissar, so good to see you. Was the Siberian venture lucrative? Do say you are stopping for a meal in the lavendar room before your next departure, one could not allow you out into the permafrost again on an empty stomach.
