Help from an unexpected source

| October 27, 2007

While the usual moonbats float truly asinine theories about the causes of the Southern California fires, another group opens up their very thin wallets to help the fire’s victims:

BAGHDAD, Iraq — Members of the Iraqi Army in Besmaya collected a donation for the San Diego, Calif., fire victims Thursday night at the Besmaya Range Complex in a moving ceremony to support Besmaya’s San Diego residents.

Iraqi Army Col. Abbass, the commander of the complex, presented a gift of $1,000 to U.S. Army Col. Darel Maxfield, Besmaya Range Complex officer in charge, Multi-National Security Transition Command Iraq, to send to the fire victims in California.

The money was collected from Iraqi officers and enlisted soldiers in Besmaya. In a speech given during the presentation, Col. Abbass stated that he and the Iraqi soldiers were connected with the American people in many ways, and they will not forget the help that the American government has given the Iraqi people. Abbass was honored to participate by sending a simple fund of $1,000 to the American people in San Diego, to lower the suffering felt by the tragedy.

Given that the average monthly pay of an Iraqi soldier is a little over $300, that’s a generous donation. ..bruce w..

    I am deeply touched and humbled by the generous gift from our brothers in Besmaya. From one grateful American to our brothers overseas – Thank you for your heartfelt gift, Colonel Abbass and company, sent to Americans in a time of great loss and tragedy. Your caring gesture will always be remembered long after boards and bricks are re-built into new and loving homes.
