To paraphrase an Nth-hand communication from a serving soldier, the trooper is not pleased with how the progress they are making over there is being systematically mis- or under-reported. He and his boys do see some of the coverage on the 'talkback' of the embedded reporters, and they are some pissed. The headline from the LA Times yesterday (something like 'things are getting worse and worse') reached the grunts yesterday afternoon and they are not happy about it.

The word from the front line is this - we are kicking ass and taking names here. The enemy is losing men and materiel at a completely unsustainable rate. EPW's must now exceed the numbers being given in the US media by a very large margin. We are taking virtually no casualties at all, of any kind. Do not confuse a lack of motion with a lack of progress. The trooper claims to have plenty of everything they need, except hot showers. We have no need to move forward, the enemy is coming to us and we are cleaning his clock in open country, a hundred times preferable to dealing with him in a city environment. Believe only half of what you see and virtually none of what you hear.
