VIVA ITALIA

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2004 08:45 AM

Unlike the Philippines, Italy is apparently standing firm against terrorists who have kidnapped an Italian journalist: The Italian government said Tuesday it would maintain its 3,000 troops in Iraq despite an ultimatum from a radical Muslim group holding an Italian journalist and demanding that Rome withdraw its forces within 48 hours. A statement from Prime […]

THE WISDOM OF HINDSIGHT

Though he hasn’t yet read my book, he defends the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous Korematsu ruling in a recent entry: …the wisdom of hindsight is treacherous.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 24, 2004 12:32 PM

They let their deeds speak for themselves. Some of the most off-putting words any veteran can utter are “I’m a war hero.” Real heroes (and I’ve been honored to know some) […]
