As the National Media slobbers orgiastically over charges of murder against our Marines, and seem suspicious and even disappointed in the news of Ishaqi incident, where our troops exonerated after murder accusations, an anonymous soldier proves once again how incredible our troops really are. This one young man walked into the U.S. military hospital in Germany and gave his Purple Heart to wounded reporter Kimberly Dozier.

Soldier Gives His Purple Heart to Dozier

Kimberly Dozier, the CBS reporter wounded by a car bomb in Iraq, now has a Purple Heart at her bedside in a U.S. military hospital in Germany after a young American soldier gave her his medal, the network said…”A young American soldier came up to Kimberly’s brother Michael and told him that he had met Kimberly in Iraq two years ago after he had been wounded with shrapnel in his arm,” CBS said without identifying the soldier. “The soldier had his Purple Heart with him, and he told Michael that he’d like Kimberly to have it because, he said, she’s suffered as much as any soldier. That Purple Heart is now beside Kimberly’s bed.”

You won’t find this story splashed about on Page One of international media for days and days because it portrays a soldier as compassionate and caring. And that truth certainly does not suit the National Media at all. And I wonder how many press conferences John Murtha will have about this situation. I think it’s safe for all of us to guess that number will be zero.

    The words and actions coming from these despicable people is sickening. Murtha , Chris Matthews , Wolf Blitzer and the MSM have joined the ranks of the enemy. How dare they find these men guilty without a full investigation. How dare they compare this to My Lai calling these men murderers. What may be a propaganda video made by and given out by our enemy is gospel to these tratiors. They work diligently to demoralize and intimidate our troops. Their hatred for President Bush and proud arrogance wanting to fuel their “I told you so” about the war puts their dirty egos above the safety and well being of our troops. Who needs Osama when we have these sonofabitches doing his will ? Give these men who are being accused a fair trial. IF they are guilty, we will deal with them and they should be punished. IF they are cleared then Murtha and the rest of these adversaries of America need to be tried for sedition and shot for betraying America and siding with the enemy.

    Kids are sentimental types. A good thing overall. It’s nice to know that even in times of confusion and riot people are capable of being excellent to each other. (Unlike certain commentators I could name.)

    I was talking to a military mom friend of mine the other day and I posed the question of just how many of the “Americans are committing war crimes” accusations get proven to be false. She rolled her eyes at me and said, “About 99.9% of them.”

    What this soldier did was the REAL heart and soul of our military. As bad as some in the media and in our government would lead us to believe we are, they can’t erase the truth, and they can’t explain away this soldier’s gracious gesture.

    Every time something negative happens in Iraq that makes the military look bad, it’s all over the news, yet the positive actions taking place are as publicized as well as my cats’ bowel movements. I was suprised to hear about this selfless act made by the anonymous soldier on CNN. It’s a rare look at a military member doing something wonderful.

    Murtha doesn’t care about this incident because it doesn’t advance his self-aggrandizing agenda. Why should he mention it? He’s a self-promoting partisan. The truth is, it doesn’t matter what any adjudicated outcome is here; even if the Marines at Haditha are completely cleared, the damage is done. The MSM doesn’t care about the truth in Iraq; they just want another negative soundbite to use against the President. Even if there are profuse apologies from the MSM if the Marines are cleared, they are meaningless. They have already taken their pound of flesh, and it cannot be returned.

    It would be pleasing to think that everything that happens is part of God’s plan. That belief could give us the power to struggle through any setback or tragedy. I don’t want to argue with anyone who is comforted by this philosophy, but I can’t wrap my head around it. The closest I can come is the sense that God expects us to figure out the right thing as best we can and then do it, in spite of the obvious fact that the world has gone terribly wrong and evil often triumphs.

    Tammy has mentioned the Pope raising the question of where was God when Auschwitz was operating. If you think about it, the question makes no sense. Murdering a single human being is in itself an infinite tragedy. Murdering millions is merely a million times infinity…which is really the same as a single infinity, isn’t it? If God would intervene to prevent the murder of 6 million, then wouldn’t He also prevent the murder of 5 million? Or 1 million? Or 10? Or 1? And if He would prevent the murder of 1, then shouldn’t he also save that 1 from, for example, being hit by a car and maimed? And if He saves us from getting hit by a car, how about keeping us from getting rained upon? Where do you draw the line? No, free will is a package deal. You take it all or you take none. Preventing Auschwitz was our job, not God’s.

    I read about the wonderful selfless gesture this soldier made and not one word was made in any of the news reports I saw over the weekend.
    The news media as a whole don’t want to give any positive comments about our military. And when one of their own is hurt, they don’t want to give any positive coverage of how well the military doctors and personel have come to their rescue. When a reporter says something positive, it is discounted, if not ignored.
    This war is more than just Iraq and Afghanistan. It is worldwide and there is an enemy that many refuse to see. It is muslim fundamentalists and the countries that aid, support and encourage them.

    The soldier who gave his purple heart to her should be profiled as an example of the men and women serving in our armed forces.
