So, I was never really done with my post the other night. However, I was getting way too emotional and I wasn't putting myself through anymore that night. Not to mention it was another "2" and I wasn't about to throw myself into a whirlwind.
Anyways, I hear the newest debate in the White House is whether or not to release pictures of Osama after he was shot. Now. He is what really pisses me off. The Associated Press, and the Government, didn't hesitate to post pictures of our dead. Remember that? You know the picture and article I saw of my lifeless boyfriend being carried onto a medivac. Or the pictures of another Marine who was clearly not going to make it.
You couldn't see your faces. But I could have told you that was Josh from a mile away and really not seeing their face didn't make it any better. So whats so special about Osama? Why the hesitation? It just angers me that they had to use pictures of our war dead to make a freakin point and then they hesitate to post a picture of that piece of shit. Really?!
I, personally, would like to see it. Kind of a confirmation thing that he's really gone and got what he deserved. You know, it's not even that I'm happy he's dead. So much revolves around death anymore and what good does it do? It's the fact that he can't hurt anybody else that is comforting.
I don't know. How I feel about all of this is just weird. I was 11 years old in a sixth grade math class when the twin towers were struck on September 11, 2001. I had no idea where this war was going to take me and everything that would happen in the past 10 years.
One thing people need to realize is the war isn't over. The troops can't just come home because one of them is dead. I'm sure there are thousands of idiots that are part of the Taliban willing to take his place. This isn't over. And minor pet peeve: I like how everyone is suddenly extremely patriotic for the week and by next Sunday they will forget about it again. Annoying. But I'll write more about that later..
