AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Someone Found Time to Visit and Thank America’s Wounded Troops

When was the last time you heard anything like this coming from a Democrat politician? Barack Obama? The mass media? The Left?

That’s what I thought.

Mrs. Greyhawk: Someone Made Time for Our Wounded Troops

Why isn’t this in the news?…

Iraq’s Interior Minister Thanks U.S. Troops for Liberating Iraq — [CNS News]

A top Iraqi official visited wounded American troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., Tuesday to thank them for their part in ending Saddam Hussein’s rule in his country.

“We have come … to express our gratitude and appreciation for the sacrifices made by these great warriors, soldiers, in freeing the Iraqi people and in helping us in Iraq recover from tyranny and dictatorship,” Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior, said through a translator to a handful of journalists in the lobby of the medical center.

…probably because all the major networks are following some other guy

But those at Walter Reed are glad to be appreciated and supported;

“We also want to express our gratitude to the families of all these great men and women and express how important their sacrifices are for our nation,” he added.

And the Iraqi PM didn’t make a political brouhaha about it.

The Iraqi government official, who didn’t mention presidential politics, said that he also wanted to visit Walter Reed because it was a “great institution.” “(We wanted) to witness firsthand the level of technical (and) medical sophistication that is being practiced here so that we may learn from it to help our foreign wounded and the many, many victims of terrorism and violence in Iraq,” Bolani added.

This is great, our troops deserve this and so much more.

Indeed.  Kudos and many thanks to Jawad Karim al-Bolani, Iraq’s minister of the interior.  If only our own so-called leaders had the integrity and gratitude you showed to our troops.
