Moby checked in with fans on his official web site journal at Moby.com on Thursday (August 19), talking about the lack of coverage given to the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq. He writes:
I’m a bit confused as to why the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq isn’t a bigger news story?
In the Google news round-up it was actually listed below Blagojevich’s trial and something about Justin Bieber. One would think that the end of 7 1/2 years of U.S combat operation in Iraq would merit a bit more news coverage? Maybe if there’d been some celebrity endorsements? Like: ‘The Cast of True Blood Presents: The End of U.S. Combat Operations in Iraq!’ (sponsored by Diet Coke and Summer’s Eve).
In any case: good luck to all involved. The Iraqis, the U.S. soldiers, and the allied soldiers. It was a war that never should have started, that cost the U.S. over $1,000,000,000,000.00 dollars, and that took the lives of tens of thousands of soldiers and citizens.
I, for one, am truly glad to see the end of U.S. combat operations in Iraq.
Good luck to all.
