It is screwed up, that these two views are so diametrically opposed, yet neither stands out as the truth.

What exactly is sickening? *I think most people are doing their best to help. *The lines around here for donating to the "survivors" are insanely long.

I also believe that there are more good things being offered and all these horribly exaggerated and isolated reports tend to make people less likely to help since they'll just start believing that some volunteer will just steal whatever they're donating.....

Why can't we just get some happy stories for cryin' out loud????????????

Re: This kind of stuff makes me ill

because the media doesnt like to post the good shit. I mean look at Iraq, soldiers are coming back saying that the people in the streets were thanking them and handing them gifts. We don't see that on the 6 o'clock news.

In the media "If it bleeds, it leads." we try getting the most gruesome stories. After thats over we end the news broadcast with sports.

AMEN! Spot on with that comment. I can verify that first hand and even have a ring my Iraqi neighbor gave me while over there.

I have to throw up some pics tomorrow of us chilling with the neighbors. We taught the kids how to play wiffle ball, taught the adults how to lift weights, bailed some of their guys who got caught outside in a curfew zone one night and were taking fire for being out when they werent supposed to be out (it was a few days before the elections and everything was locked down. Security was beefed up big time). You help them out they help you out. Whether its with intel, letting us borrow their armored mercedes s500, getting things off the economy we cant get, favors, cooking a meal etc.
