OpinionJournal - Featured Article: "think of what the Marine and Army units just accomplished in Fallujah. In a single week, they killed as many as 1,200 of the enemy and captured 1,000 more. They did this despite forfeiting the element of surprise, so civilians could escape, and while taking precautions to protect Iraqis that no doubt made their own mission more difficult and hazardous. And they did all of this not for personal advantage, and certainly not to get rich, but only out of a sense of duty to their comrades, their mission and their country."

May God bless these men, who sacrifice themselves for the benefit of the world. They are doing good work in hard circumstances over there, and deserve our support. These letters condemning the picture of one soldier because he is smoking a cigarette, of another because of the rosary on his Bushmaster (which, by the way, indicates that the weapon has not been fired for a while) make me sick. When are people going to open their eyes and see what is really at stake in Iraq. I don't care any more if you opposed or supported the war to begin with; none of that matters. What is important now is getting the job done—and these men and women are doing it.
