My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Further Thoughts On Nightline

I really didn't find Ted Koppel's recitation of the list of dead as offensive as, I think, some--read to my posts below for a full explanation.

However, I do find Mark Steyn's column on the issue both incisive and important. And Fox News is answering Steyn's charge--at some point this week (see the listings--I didn't hear the specifics) they are going to do a similar recitation. Only theirs will be of the important things that have been accomplished in Iraq in the last year.

I think it would only be appropriate to lament the dead--to wail and gnash teeth and cry about how unnecessary the war is--once we know the totality of what they died for. My guess is, the ledger will show that their uncommon valor bought an extraordinary transformation.
