WAR: Peggy Noonan, Tough Guy

Noonan gets it just right about Fallujah:

We know what the men and boys who did the atrocity of Fallujah look like; they posed for the cameras. We know exactly what they did--again, the cameras. We know they massed on a bridge and raised their guns triumphantly. It's all there on film. It would be good not only for elemental justice but for Iraq and its future if a large force of coalition troops led by U.S. Marines would go into Fallujah, find the young men, arrest them or kill them, and, to make sure the point isn't lost on them, blow up the bridge. Whatever the long-term impact of the charred bodies the short term response must be a message to Fallujah and to all the young men of Iraq: the violent and unlawful will be broken.

Itís a tribute to the restraint and humanity of our armed forces that there still is a Fallujah.

I wonder what Saddam would have done if this had been done to his people under his watch.

I'm with Peggy and the Crank. Talk about ungrateful bastards ... don't those animals know we liberated their spiteful asses?
