I've Been Thinking:
Three Iraqi Soldiers Tackle a Suicide Bomber Wearing an Explosive Belt
This simple story is enormously important for our understanding of what is truly happening in Iraq now.
Unfortunately, the terrorist succeeded in igniting the belt killing himself, the three soldiers and seven other innocent people. The terrorist attack took place during Army Day Festivities, a day dedicated to honoring the Iraqi army. Masses of people were there to demonstrate their support for the new Iraq.
The three Iraqi soldiers are heroes, they represent a new breed of soldier in Iraq - soldiers willing to confront evil and fight evil even at the cost of their own lives.
This entire phenomenon is transformative.
