What happened Friday night has overwhelmed the weekend. We will mourn and be hurt for a long time. We are haunted by memories of Operation Redwings.
I've been on Twitter, retweeting supportive words about the incident, the SEALs and the other service members (1st I heard US Army, but now they may be National Guard) lost in this tragic incident.
I couldn't watch any of my Sunday morning talk shows for fear some politician would say something assinine and I would smash a TV.
Jeff Emmanuel says "The questions arising from the Afghan tragedy are (1)natural, & (2)highly reflective of influence media & H'wood have on public information"
He's 100% correct, but jeez it's still aggravating. Why wasn't America paying more attention to our military before this? Why are the asking stupid questions and saying stupid things.
Yeah, I know my view is completely unrealistic. But I'm so angry. Sure I'm angry at the Taliban, but that's war. I expect the Taliban to try and sometimes succeed. But my fellow Americans should be better than some of the shit I've seen on Twitter.
