I got a phone call on my cell yesterday. My brother James has come back from his six months in Iraq. It was totally worth the minutes used to hear the news. I haven’t been worried about him–I don’t really worry about much. But I was just a bit unnerved at times knowing he was [...]
As is usual when I get close to finishing a film, my blogging time goes down. I’m under particular pressure with Red State however, since I’m trying to finish it in time to send a copy to my brother James in Iraq before he and the men he’s with are shipped off to a new [...]
My brother James is currently serving with (but is not part of) Navy SEALs as part of his six month Iraq deployment. He revisits the recent loss of eleven SEAL members in Afghanistan and discusses their sacrifice as part of a greater whole in the rebuilding of Iraq: Most of the focus on the war [...]
Senator Russ Feingold has introduced a resolution calling for Bush to set a timetable and a list of goals and actions to begin exiting Iraq for good. From the website: “I have introduced a resolution that calls on President Bush to define the mission of our military in Iraq, set a plan to accomplish that [...]
Obviously, I am not a great fool…you would have counted on it! So I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.

Chrenkoff’s still at it, with Good News from Iraq Part 27. A consistent resource, Chrenkoff’s also got reports from Afghanistan and the Middle East in general, which you may want to read sometime if you’re hankering for some news other than the “blood and tears” cranked out by MSM.
I’ve stopped reading Instapundit on a daily basis, instead hitting his site about once a week to get the latest on whatever blogging fad he’s linking at the moment. So I missed a post from last Thursday in which he addresses the leftist fallacy that freeing Iraq and making way for democracy in that country [...]
Greg Piper says that Bush and Clinton are more alike than either guys’ supporters want to admit. Maybe so. Note, however, there remains significant differences between the two that will forever separate them in the annals. Perhaps without the small, seemingly backward steps of Clinton, Bush might not have been able to begin the first [...]
Arthur Chrenkoff keeps ‘em coming with Good News From Iraq #19. Elections are two weeks away and there’s more than enough bad news saturating the MSM. See why all is not doom and gloom in this country struggling to arrive at peace and democracy.
One thing I will continue to do here on Fringe is link to blog-worthy items that I think you should be seeing (I’m kind of like the Mainstream Media that way). I’ve been appreciative of Chrenkoff’s link roundups in the past because they bring to light many items of note that I would otherwise probably [...]
