Can't Win

Write a comment Michael, I appreciate the danger you subject yourself to in order to bring us stories from Iraq and Afghanistan. I have followed your work since the earlier days and have observed a funny thing about some of us that leave comments. When you make an observation about a particular topic but don't take sides, you get comments from people questioning and pushing for you to sound off with your personal position. Then when you do, and it doesn't happen to agree with what we wanted to hear we get ignorant. People are funny. I 'personally', realize that as a former SF soldier your training gives you insight and perspective on global governmental and political ebb and flow that most people do not have. Coupled with the fact that you are actually on the ground seeing first hand the effects that both our military and political actions are having in different countries worldwide; causes me to see your comments on the current election as very relevant. People forget that in past dispatches you have made comments in your dispatches that were "swimming upstream", only to pick up the paper or turn on the news days, months, or a year later to find that Michael Yon was spot on. Michael you keep right on doing what you do. Stay Safe Gilbert
