Deja vu, all over again ("Names")

I've been reading and watching reports about the fall of Mosul and Tikrit to militants affiliated with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant --- and experiencing a flashback or two.

So the post this morning is a link to an earlier post, from June of 2006 --- in part because some aspects of Blogger are giving me fits today and it won't let me do exactly what I wanted to do.

I think I was wrong in 2006, by the way --- fearing that U.S. troops involved in the various Gulf wars would be vilified. Just marginalized and forgotten, I'd say now. Here's the link.

I didn't read your 2006 blog highlighted here until today, but as usual, your eloquence puts into words thoughts that have haunted my mind from the day this war began. Thank you for that. It is a gift.
