Steyn on Iran and Europe/Vets for Freedom

Hugh Hewitt has the best guests and the best interviews on the radio today. Yesterday, in the event you missed it, Hugh interviewed Mark Steyn regarding this article on Iran (posted earlier by Steve). You can read a transcript of the interview here. Steyn also talked brilliantly--if alarmingly--about the outcome of the recent Italian elections where the leftist party took control of the government. More indication, in his mind, that Europe is headed past the point of redemption and on toward complete capitulation.

While you’re there, you should also take a look at the interview with Lt. Wade Zirkle--the man responsible for this fine article (sorry registration is required--but it’s free) and this fine organization. Lt. Zirkle told of the things that inspired him to work toward providing a voice for the men and women serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan in the current political debate surrounding the war. One particularly moving (and, I might add, manly) story was about one Doc Worley. This guy was hit in an i.e.d. attack in 2004, and had his leg instantly blown off. He had the composure to apply his own tourniquet and then drag himself over to the humvee where his fellow soldiers lay injured and adminster aid to them! These are the kind of people working with his group, Vets for Freedom. I have no doubt they can and will influence the debate in a positive way.
