New Thinking on Iraq

Jonah Goldberg has an excellent column in today's LAT with some new ideas regarding Iraq. Essentially, he suggests holding a referendum in Iraq on whether or not US troops should remain in that country until the Iraqi government decides they are no longer needed or to leave immediately.

It's an interesting idea.

Death of a Hero

Marine Lance Corporal Christopher Adlesperger was killed during combat operations in Fallujah in December last year. He has been nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery under fire during the battle to retake the city the previous month. If his nomination is approved, he will be the first Marine awarded the Medal since Vietnam.

The LAT's Tony Perry has an excellent piece describing Corporal Adlesperger's life and how he risked his life to protect fellow Marines. It is well worth reading.
