I'll make a longer entry about the events in Baghdad when I feel I'm able to wrap my brain around them more fully. But, in the meantime, I had to share this interesting coincidence that caught my attention.
I was listening to the radio on the way home tonight, and every hour, they interrupt the music with an update on Gulf War II. So, in the latest update, they had a brief news snippet about how the father of one of the young men killed in the helicopter crash was angry at Bush for putting his son in this situation, and wanted to make sure that he knew the seat intended for his son at Thanksgiving would be empty forever.
So, right after this news bit ends, they go into a commercial...For the Navy.
Two lines from the commercial struck as particularly ironic, considering what's going on, and that specific news story.
"You'll have immediate opportunities to work with top of the line technology."
"Accelerate your life."
