From the Soldier's Mouth

Lone Star Times points out an excellent article by a US Marine Corps officer who has started his third tour of duty in Iraq. He paints a much different picture of the current situation in Iraq than we hear daily from the mainstream American media, from the eyes of one who has been there and seen the truth:
For every vividly portrayed suicide bombing, there are hundreds of thousands of people living quiet, if often uncertain, lives. For every depressing story of unrest and instability there is an untold story of potential and hope. The impression of Iraq as an unfathomable quagmire is false and dangerously misleading.
