Cool Blue and Me Agree

For the second time in less than a month! Is this a sign of the End Times?

There is an interesting commentary over on the Cool Blue Blog on the character of American solders. It is a good reminder, and it is absolutely correct. It has been correct for the entire history of our country.

While I think that the people who got us into this costly and pointless war in Iraq are greedy and evil, and of questionable sanity, it is good to remember that the qualities of the basic general Issue American are still good, and moral.

So while the Generals plan for "acceptable losses" in our troops and in civilians, and Bush and his cronies divide up the Iraqi oil fields amongst their friends, and the legions of missionaries gather to convert the heathen, it is good to remember that who we are as a people is found not with the general, but with the private.
