Thin Line

Have you given thanks today for the thin neocon line that stands -- at their keyboards -- between civilization and savagery:

So we really are left with very little in these pivotal times--the will of George Bush, of course, the Old Breed unchanged since Okinawa and the Bulge that still anchors the US military, the courage and skill of a very few brave writers like a Hitchens, Krauthammer, and the tireless and brilliant Mark Steyn, but very, very few others. No, this is an age in which we in the West make smug snuff movies about killing an American President, while the Taliban and the Islamists boast of assassinating the Pope.

Do you know what is most laughable about this ridiculous paragraph? This: "the Old Breed unchanged since Okinawa and the Bulge". "The
Old Breed" is the nickname of the US 1st Marine Division, a famous division. The 1st Marines fought on Okinawa but not the Bulge. This is basic stuff-any World War II buff knows it. Daniel Larison has commented on Hanson's appalling ignorance on his blog. This is just another example.
