I’m not sure I can say this any better than Mary Katherine Ham:
While, on the homefront, politicians concentrate on finding new and innovative ways to lose in Iraq, our servicemen are coming up with new and innovative ways to win, despite them.
So while the Baker-Hamilton Old and Tired White Men Commission wrote (as PatriotPartner says) the most lengthy unconditional surrender document ever written, our troops continue to show the true American spirit of fighting a war and finding creative solutions to complex problems.
In an age of multimillion-dollar high-tech weapons systems, sometimes it’s the simplest ideas that can save lives. Which is why a New Jersey mother is organizing a drive to send cans of Silly String to Iraq.
American troops use the stuff to detect trip wires around bombs, as Marcelle Shriver learned from her son, a soldier in Iraq.
Before entering a building, troops squirt the plastic goo, which can shoot strands about 10 to 12 feet, across the room. If it falls to the ground, no trip wires. If it hangs in the air, they know they have a problem. The wires are otherwise nearly invisible.
Why don’t they shred the Iraq Surrender Group document and shove it in a can of Silly String so it can do its part to help win the war?
