Read the whole thing by Bill Whittle at "Eject! Eject! Eject!". Read it twice! It's that good!
Excerpt from Part 2, on the surge of hope:
"Look at this picture of the aftermath of an IED explosion. Who do you think this Iraqi child considers the ‘strong horse?’ Can you fake this kind of reaction, this instantaneous bolt to safety in the middle of fire and death?"
