iRack Is No (i)Home
For years now there have been mixed emotions about the War on Terror in Iraq.
Some people are in favor of sending our troops across seas to fight someone else’s battle, while others are vehemently against it.
The latter have taken many different actions in expressing their distaste for this never ending battle, and unnecessary sacrifice of so many of our American soldiers.
From protests in the street to simple magnetic bumper-stickers in support of our troops, the country has definitely made its voice heard. Today I even saw a man standing outside in the rain, on a busy street corner, holding a “Bring home our troops!” sign; the same man that has been reportedly standing on that very street corner for almost a year now. While the fight to bring our men (and women) home continues—one passionate individual at a time—there doesn’t seem to be much being done in returning these brave Americans, that have done more than enough already, back into the arms of loved ones and family.
If anything it’s only getting worse, with President Bush’s recent command of 21,000 more American troops into Iraq.
Luckily entities such as “Saturday Night Live” and “Mad TV,” among others, have been supplying the yearning American public with parodies and comical anecdotes about the war, as a means of easing the pains and frustrations felt by many. A recent skit, aired on “Mad TV,” invites the public to have a laugh at the ridiculous realities that our country and our army faces today—via the new (and obviously fictional) Apple invent, the iRack.
