Will They Ever Trust Us Again?:  Letters from the War Zone
Will They Ever Trust Us Again Letters from the War Zone
Author: Michael Moore
American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask, though, is that they not be sent into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary.

I really enjoyed this book. Written in the form of individual letters from soliders to family and friends the reader is brought closer to the hearts and minds of the young men and women so tragicaly mislead into Americas most grandiose blunder since Vietnam.

You have to read this. I found a pre-publicatrion copy in an airline seat pocket.

The book stunned me into silence. It's a collection of letters from the front written by soliers in Iraq.

If you want the real truth not that whitewashed nonsense from the Wasington Post, FOX News and the networks find it here.

This is not one of Micheral Moores usual ignorant socialist rants, but a powerful statement that tells it's own story. We all owe Moore a debt of gratitude for sharing this with us.

Highly recommended even if you are not a fan of Micheal Moore. This is one book you'll never see covered on the O'Reilly Factor.

... this book address the question of whether, as a nation, America can save face and gain ground after 8 years of unilateral decision-making and ignoring the advice of other nations.

Over the last year, Moore invited soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as their friends and family members, to send him letters. He received "thousands" of responses, mostly via his Web site, and this book presents a sampling of those transmissions. Some are short notes thanking Moore for Fahrenheit 9/11 and ranting against Republicans, but the vast majority are personal stories written with passion and an obvious mixture of emotionsanger at the Bush administration ("I signed a contract with the government to serve in our military, and proudly, but I never thought that our military would be used in such a self-serving, crooked, and disgraceful way"), remorse ("It didnt hit me until I saw Fahrenheit 9/11 that I was driving the ship that was sending planes to kill people"), fear ("I am wondering if this is the last Christmas I will spend with my son") and sorrow ("Chris, the dead young man, was a former student of mine. This incredibly stupid war now has a face and a name, and I find I cant quit crying"). A recurring story is that of the naïve teenager who signed up "looking for some extra pocket money and a way to college" and who is now jaded, angry and searching for a way out. In his introduction, Moore writes, "What makes these comments unique and so intense is the fact that they are not the words of the Left or the rhetoric of the antiwar movementthey are the war movement." Its clear, however, that many of the contributors are Left-leaning or firmly in the Democrats camp. Not a word of dissension (and its safe to assume the Moore has received letters from those who dont agree with him) is included here.
