Get it right

Just wanted to put up a link to this post. His experience is not unusual, the Iraqis are very friendly, hospitable people. I heard some talking head interviewing another talking head a few days ago about Iraq -v- Al Qaeda, saying "why are we fighting Iraqis?" I am getting really tired of this being the depiction of the War. We are not fighting the Iraqis! We are fighting in Iraq, alongside Iraqis, against terrorists. Many are from other countries, some are from Iraq. So for the record, we are not at war with Iraq. We are at war in Iraq. There is a difference.

... think this post is so right on, Pat. As usual, you put it sucinctly. I'm linking it over to (Pro)Claiming Age today. I noticed that neither Tommi's blog nor mine are on your blogroll. An oversight?
