This Is A Man
I've been collecting things to talk about in the interim, though. Here's one: a Q & A with Captain David Rozelle at NRO. This is a man.
NRO: You've done your service, man, why would you ever want to go back?And:
Captain Rozelle: It is my duty. By accepting command, I knew that I would eventually return to Iraq. I am smarter, stronger, and more ready to help create freedom for the Iraqi people.
NRO: Deployment is hard on a marriage — as it is on your whole family. And for you as a young father. Why is it worth it nonetheless?
Captain Rozelle: I am a warrior. It is a mindset that allows you to leave your family. Those that are afraid to leave their family to accomplish something great will never achieve anything.
NRO: If there was only one thing Americans could know about the enemy, what would you like it to be?There's all kinds of nonsense from the Left about the costs of Iraq and the so-called missteps of the Bush administration and the hand-wringing about the power of the alleged "insurgency." Captain Rozelle shows us (and the Left) why we will win. Our enemies simply cannot breed men like him.
Captain Rozelle: They are cowards that hide behind women and children. We will destroy them.
