There's a short article today about how the 363rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company of the Arizona Army National Guard is deploying to Iraq. Sometimes they don't allow comments on articles about controversial subjects, but they left this one open. And it doesn't take long for the tin foil brigade to show up:
"Aren't there enough people over there already..." It amazes me how many people don't seem to realize that when one group deploys, it's usually to replace one that's coming home, at least now that the surge is over.
And as for "I mean if their [SIC] that evil and bad over there.... let them clean up the mess". Yup, let the bad guys police themselves. If we just leave them alone, they'll become nice. Really. Maybe we should ask Mexico to try that with the drug cartels.
Helen? Helen Thomas, is that you?
