Armistice Day

It is rather fitting that, with the world press' prediliction for the pressing demise of Arafat, that his death is announced on Armistice Day.

"At 5 A.M. on Monday, November 11, 1918 the Germans signed the Armistice, an order was issued for all firing to cease; so the hostilities of the First World War ended. This day began with the laying down of arms, blowing of whistles, impromptu parades, closing of places of business. All over the globe there were many demonstrations; no doubt the world has never before witnessed such rejoicing."

To the vets, today is a day to remember your service, and thank you for preserving our freedom. All gave some, and some gave all. Semper Fi. - If you do click on this link, be warned,

And it finally looks like our troops are doing something good in Iraq, but they are getting hit hard. Even so, does anyone remember what it was like in Falluja before we invaded their country?
