Everything isn’t peachy keen in Iraq. Our soldiers are not all beacons of moral virtue and integrity. Don’t believe everything the mainstream media shows you. Indeed, be skeptical of such reports you see on the news. They are crafted and produced by expert propaganda makers.
“Islamic extremists” are only egged on by our presence in their land. Like sticking your hand into a beehive, we are being stung.

We are occupying territory that we have no right to, and beating and killing people who are defending their own land. Ridiculous.
