Positive Stories From Afghanistan

In the spirit of continuing to post items regarding Aghanistan that shed light on the complexity of the situation, rather than the MSM's steady diet of doom and gloom, I ran across two inspiring stories.

One is on the man they call the "Afghan Rambo" and how he prevented a suicide bombing at an American base in Kabul. Kim du Toit has the details.

Milblogger Captain Doug Traversa of Afghanistan Without a Clue provides a roundup of related links and elsewhere a rather touching story about Afghanistan's biggest new TV show, "Afghan Star." Kind of puts things in perspective.

These are the sort of stories that if regularly reported (and given front page status) by the MSM, would actually inspire the American public to want to fight the good fight. As it is, we are drowning in a sea of negativity and defeatism. I guess that's the point.

Our lamestream media won't print stories like these. If they do, it might show our efforts in both Afghanistan and Iraq are paying off, even if gradually.

We all get that there are positive and negative stories.

Is it true or false that the generals in Afghanistan have asked for, and indicated that they need, more troops to do the mission there?
It is the Generals, in command there, who would be the reliable source, as to the real state of things, and the needs, to accomplish the mission there, right?

What are you the Spanish Inquisition? And so what if they've asked for more troops? Maybe in your vast military experience nobody ever asked for more troops during a war.

Leftists. Always hoping and praying for failure.

When they ask for more troops, they receive them. When you are looking for on-the-ground information, you ask the grunts. Do you know that is not a derogatory word?

It would be as if you asked the Big Labor or the CEO of a company how they are doing at the docks. Do you really think they'd know? Pitiful try.

Dear Cinnamon,

Thank you for posting about Cpt. Traversa and the others. If you would like to read an interview he gave recently, you can read it here.

Keep up the good work, no matter how lonely it sometimes appears. We are out there, and they are not going to get us to go away. Mwahahahahaha!

You have it right, Rosemary, you are all "out there."

You are an ever-shrinking slice of the far right wing. Commons sense usually wins in the end - proven by the dwindling number of supporters for the fear-mongering, violence-first neocons.

By any honest assessment, Bush has been one of the worst leaders in our history. This war has been run disasterously by the White House. Our troops, their families, our nation's soul and our standing in the world are all worse off for it.

It's would be comical if it wasn't so sad. You continue to insist the sky is green and the grass is blue ... no matter how many good and honest people tell you otherwise.
