War? What War? 5.09.08


Well, Dear Gentle Reader(s), it's 5 years and 8 days since "Mission Accomplished," and it must be over. 

It must be over because the first  mentions of the Iraqi/Afghanistan military missions in major English language papers here in the Coachella Valley occur on Page A8 of The Desert Sun, Page A7 of The Press-Enterprise, and Page A6 of the Los Angeles Times.

So it must be over, right?

American service personnel being shot at, dodging IEDs and mortars, and suffering other dangers isn't important enough for the managing editors and publishers of these newspapers to mention on page A1. 

Over 4,000 dead, most after Mission Accomplished.

Trust, but verify.
