Black Hawk Down

I'm watching Black Hawk Down right now. It makes me think about everything the soldiers are going through right now. It's easy for people who don't have friends and family in the military to forget about the struggles those brave men and women face on a daily basis. The war has turned into a political chip that is passed around depending on who needs it. The faces of the war, the soldiers and the civilians living under occupation, aren't seen as often as they should be. I recently read a great book for anyone interested in the war from the view of an Iraqi civilian under occupation. It's called Baghdad Burning. The book was published from a blog, located at

-Only the dead have seen the end of the war.
