These are not really dark times. Rather I think in some ways they are among the finest in our history. No other country would or could send its youth 7,000 miles away to end fascism, implement consensual government, and adhere to its principled mission amid cynicism, cheap caricature, and increasing danger.

Well said. What is so frustrating to us is that our men and women are over there performing miracles and the media is making us miss it. Historians will not be kind to the media.

"I reckon that for the ultimate health and safety of this nation one American Marine in Fallujah is worth more than the entire 9-11 board of inquiry in Washingtonand I would prefer a single American officer to a hundred of those grandees who assure us that what we are doing is either wrong or impossible."
It is writing like this that effectively sums up the differences between the military and the bureaucrat.
Alas to long for a tag line.

Imagine what this country would look like if instead of the trash that passes for social studies that Victor David Hansen was the author of Junior and High school civics texts.
I read his stuff and my chest swells with pride in being an American.
May God bless VH!! Thanks for that post. A grateful American here.
