start the war already!

I have MSNBC's live feed from Baghdad in the upper right corner of my screen. I didn't really expect there to be sound. It's very surreal to hear the birds chirping in Iraq. Every few minutes a car will drive down the street visible in the frame. Some of them are very loud and you can hear them well before they are visible. I keep thinking maybe it's the sound of an air strike. Saw a bus drive by once and just now a car honked at the car in front of it. This is pretty wild. I'm glad I finally took the time to watch Live from Baghdad last week. I had been sitting on my Replay TV for quite awhile. It was really great and I think everyone should watch as soon as they get the chance if they haven't yet seen it.

I also watched a great Frontline special on Channel 11 last night that basically detailed everything that has happened with Iraq since Desert Storm. This really is not a sudden thing and has been going on for 12 years. In fact Bill Clinton was very close to going to war with Iraq in 1998. He didn't because his advisors were afraid it wouldn't make him look good. Kinda how people are trying to make Bush look now. So let reiterate this. Clinton holds public appearance over the safety of country and the world. That's good to know. Maybe if he had gone after Iraq in 1998, there never would have been a 9/11 tragedy.
