The Corner

Favorite Moments

A friend and I were comparing favorite moments of the war so far, and he came up with this, which I don’t believe I have seen yet in The Corner.

A favorite moment of mine is the exchange–although that’s not quite the right word–that occurred when Geoffrey Hoon, explaining the situation in the House of Commons last week, said that ‘Umm Qasr is a city similar to Southampton….”

Getting word of this, a British soldier fighting for Umm Qasr felt he had to disagree: “There’s no beer, no prostitutes, and people are shooting at us. It’s more like Portsmouth.”
