Power Line's August 28 posting, "A Positive Accounting," is must reading. If time allows, link to Christopher Hitchens' source article, "A War to be Proud Of."
And as an additional food for thought item, see Robert J. Caldwell's article "Fight to win in Iraq."
As Americans, we should appreciate the tremendous progress that has been accomplished by our outstanding military to date.

The troops know their mission. We should recognize ours.
