Well Said

From a reader:

Mr. Goldberg,

I’m 50 with no military experience.

Does anyone else get lulled into complacency? Our soldiers only die in accidents! The Iraqis will surrender en masse! We’ll go to Baghdad in a cakewalk! The TV images reinforce that.

But that complacency disparages the dedication and discipline of these young

soldiers; from time to time, I realize that wherever they are in this war,

whatever they are doing, they are doing their jobs with a degree of courage

I’m unfamiliar with.
