>>>>>There are many reasons, but the two greatest may be naivete and narcissism.
I agree with the "naivete" angle, but I'm not sure about the "narcissism" reasoning. Narcissism is more of a objectivist belief.

Don't mean to speak for someone else.
My understanding of narcissism is that it is best explained as malignant self love.
This part of the article gives credence to the premise:
The liberal moralizer needs to tear down the U.S. soldier as a way of guaranteeing that the soldier is never elevated to a more honored level in American life than is he, the liberal moralizer. Tear down the soldier and you destroy the honor we feel toward that soldier. Find anything to show you are better than the soldier so that you and your smug liberal friends can celebrate your superiority. Liberal media guys cannot abide that America has heroes who are not them.
