I just spent five hours writing a fantastic Remembrance Day post with dozens of links to things military, and lots of hugely insightful thoughts about the last two presidents, AND MY COMPUTER ATE IT.

I feel like I've been shot.

If I have the heart I'll reconstruct it. Meanwhile, Happy Birthday Marine Corps (230 years) as celebrated by Mac Owens at NRO.

And we'll give the annual nod to Major John McRae with the least heeded words of his poem:

If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

There's a whole lot of "breaking faith" happening now among American leftists who would gladly throw away the lives of their military and of hundreds of thousands of victims of jihadist oppressors, if it meant they could administer the fatal blow to George W. Bush's regime. Fortunately, whether they believe in it or not, there is an afterlife and a final judgement. Not that we should have to wait that long for them to be dealt with.
