horrors of war.

The Israel Paradox: A leader with a 9% approval rating seeks to give away the store – and the Parliament is squarely behind him (August 9, 2007; Human Events)
Israeli PM Ehud Olmert, whom few expected to make it through last year’s 33-day "war" in Lebanon, is continuing down the path that not only endangered Israel’s national security and led, in part, to that war in the first place, but that caused him to be looked at as a farce of a leader by over 90% of his own population.
So Long, Scott: The 'Baghdad Diarist' Leaves The New Republic and the Knee-Jerk Left Holding the Bag (August 8, 2007; American Thinker)
Already damaged by the Stephen Glass scandal, The New Republic has been left in an exorbitantly embarrassing position by another trusted writer (and the husband of one of its own researchers), who played them for fools, admitting under oath that his articles were fabrications at the same time that he was reasserting to their faces the veracity of his every word.
Big Red Tent: The online GOP's Next Big Thing? (August 8, 2007; Human Events)

'Shock Troops' and Fabrications: The Baghdad Diarist is Revealed (July 27, 2007; Human Events)

Shocker in Georgia's 10th Congressional District: Paul Broun, Jr. turns Conventional Wisdom on its Head (July 20, 2007; Human Events)
Georgia’s 10th Congressional District was turned upside down this week, as a 9-to-1 frontrunner – and conventional wisdom – fell victim to the less predictable than originally thought will of the voting public.
Vets for Freedom Takes the Hill: Has the small contingent of Americans who still care about Victory finally found their voice? (July 18, 2007)
Thirty representatives of the thousands-strong advocacy group Vets for Freedom took Capitol Hill by storm, meeting with Senators and their representatives and making their case for continued support of General Petraeus and the American effort in Iraq.
Filling the Shoes of a Conservative Icon: Election Day in Georgia's Tenth Congressional District (July 17, 2007, The American Spectator)
Regardless of outcome, at the end of the day Georgia will have kept its 10th Congressional District Republican, and will have another vocal conservative on Capitol Hill. Anything more than that, as they say, would be a bonus.
A 'Surge' in Ignorance and Defeatism: Do Americans even care to know the facts about the war in Iraq? (July 16, 2007, The American Spectator)
