The injustice Nicholson laments is not that we expect a noble minority to pay the blood price for our security — it was ever thus — but that we demand the right to tell them how to do it. Shackled by laws, norms and protocol concocted by legalists, the US Armed Forces — who have done more for freedom of the press than all the world’s journalists combined — are put in an impossible position. It is nauseating enough that they are now casually disparaged as “hicks” and “rednecks” by do-nothing civilians, without the supposedly objective media joining in.Hat tip to the Rottweiler Empire

Times Online: Finally a major newspaper carries a positive perspecive on the war in Iraq. I guess I'm not surprised by the fact it is not an Amernican newspaper.
