Michael Yon: Moment of Truth in Iraq

Have you purchased your copy of Michael's book yet? Have you read it? The title is, "Moment of Truth in Iraq: How a New 'Greatest Generation' of American Soldiers is Turning Defeat and Disaster into Victory and Hope", and you purchase it at Amazon.com (hardcover) for only $19.77).

For those people who have read this book already, would you please go to Richard's site and leave him a comment? He is the publisher of this fantastic, and he would like some feedback.

IF YOU ARE AN IDIOT, don't bother. He is not stupid. He will be able to pick you out in a crowd with no lights on in the middle of the night. ;)

Michael has put time a lot of time, blood, sweat and tears into this book, and I highly recommend it. Hey, it's cheaper than 5 gallons of gas! Sorry. I know that wasn't funny, but I don't have one of those Saudi Arabian money grabbers. However I do smoke, and I seem to remember you voting to raise taxes on me EVERY SINGLE YEAR. So...suffer. Pretty soon, there won't be anyone to save any of us...unless we all come together to turn the tide on this mess and vote for McCain!

Hey! How did that slip in there? I do not want anyone to be taxed. Period! lol. Which brings me back to Amazon.com. If you buy this book and another one to reach the amount of $30, you can get FREE shipping! It is not only a great book, it's a great deal.

Let me tell you a little bit about Michael, then about his book. Michael was a Green Beret before and when the war broke out, he was like the rest of us only he had friends that were over there dieing. He wasn't the truth, just as we weren't, so he decided to go over there and find out what the truth really was. He has been writing for a few years now, and you may read him on his site, "Michael Yon Online." He is an incredible writer who captures you and brings you with him through all the things he sees, feels, touches. I highly recommend him.

I also highly recommend this book. Michael Yon has spent more time in Iraq (and some in Afghanistan) than any other reporter in the world. He has been embedded with the troops, instead of being locked up in Hotel Baghdad. (That is what I call it.) This book consists of 227 pages that grip your heart, make you proud, make you wonder why. Are we occuppiers? Ask the Iraqi interpreter who, upon fearing he was dying, asked Michael to cut out his heart and have it buried in America.

No, we are not occuppiers. Not according to the Iraqi people. It is a political term used by the Left. The Right has their problems, too, and Michael does not take sides. He takes the side of Truth, thus the name of the book. He called it a civil war a year before anyone ever mumbled the words. Only by that time, they had missed the boat again. This book is fascinating in so many ways. Please read about the next Greatest Generation.

PS. You may also receive his dispatches through your e-mail. They are awesome, devastating, uplifting. All the emotions of war and the rebuilding of a people who are tasting freedom and loving it. I could go forever, but then again, it is Michael's book I am trying to get you buy, not mine! LOL.

May you walk with the LORD always, and when you cannot take another step, may He carry you the rest of the way until you can.
