A voice of gaining influence
Bill Roggio graces the site of National Review with a really nice article
they've entitled "Alternative in War; For our servicemen, we blog." Here's a taste:
We approach this Friday's remembrance of veterans, past and present, with a nation bent into the gale-force winds of a story that, while not false, is far from the truth. And so, more and more are looking outside their local daily paper or nightly news for insight into the war — or they are turning it off entirely. The consequences of this culture of quick headlines and blurb news is that we see not the war, its heroes, its villains, or its predicament. Instead we are left with the nausea of casualty counts, grim milestones, and acts of terror without hope, gravity, or context. Poll numbers show the impact. Fortunately there are those who stand against these winds.
Congratulations to Bill. And thanks for helping to provide context and perspective.
