More on the Infantilization of the Troops

Heard from a reader, who heard a fairly obscure Hollywood figure on the radio a few weeks ago. The man said, “Hollywood loves the troops as victims, not as warriors.” Our reader comments, “God, I love that line.” I know what he means.

I’m also reminded of elite elements of Europe — who liked America when it was down and bleeding, right after 9/11, but liked it much less when it stood up and fought.
