Shut up about the war, already!

I subscribe to a couple of “political” newsletters. It’s a quick, easy way to stay up on the news that interests me. Being generally libertarian in bent, a lot of the people that write newsletters that interest me are opposed to the US actions in Iraq. That’s fine, I’m not so sure it was a good idea either. But dammit, it just pisses me off that every, single, day, the top five news items and at least half the total have to be “Another Bad Thing Happened in Iraq.”

Shut up already! I know you think Iraq was a bad idea! I know that soldiers facing hostiles are going to die! I know innocents pay in wartime! Sheesh, give it a break. There’s plenty going on inside our borders, focus on that for a while.
