A Truly Courageous Blogger Being Harrassed

A fine blog, A Female Soldier's Story 2 is having problems. It is the blog of a woman, wife and mother serving in Iraq. She is a loyal and dedicated soldier, and regardless of your feelings on women in combat she is deserving of respect, gratitude, and support as long as she is there.

Her blog has been hacked a couple of times, leading her to posts saying.

I wish to express my congratulations to the hackers, vandals, and anti-war visitors who successfully blocked my ability to post any further tributes to the soldiers. I am sure you find victory in preventing myself and others from having a place to read and pay our respects to the Fallen Female Soldiers, and my brother’s in arms, the brave soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division. I can only imagine your satisfaction in justifying the disgrace of men and women who died for this country.

It was brought to my attention that my polls had been changed. When I went there, I was completely shocked by all the questions. Once again, it was originally designed to offer a voice in things. And once again it was abused. Do you people think that this is cute, or just hell-bent on trying to get me into trouble? Did I do something so offensive to you personally that you feel the need to attack me in such a personal way?

She puts up with comments like
Your Fuhrer lied when he claimed Saddam had WMD; when he claimed that Saddam had ties to al-Qaeda; when he claimed that he invaded to bring them democracy; when he presented human rights as a vital issue; when he stated that "America does not torture"; when he stated that torture was the isolated acts of a few people and not a policy; when he spoke under a banner that read, "Missionn (sic) Accomplished."

She courageously answers "I will not let your emails refering to me as a "baby killer", your calls for me to walk away from my duties, your questioning of my loyality to this county discourage me."

This is not just somebody in pajamas blogging. This is somebody risking her life for all of us and for Iraq and the lack of simple courtesy being shown to her is sickening.

If you have never been to her blog, go there and encourage her. Let her know that most Americans appreciate her and her sacrifice.

Thanks Shoprat, I added her. Personally, I feel that any person (male or female) deserves our utmost respect, that fights for our country. If a draft is ever needed; I'll enlist before that bloody day comes, because our soldiers need willing peers to watch their back.
