Kipling and Iraq

James Pinkerton writes an unusually thoughtful column on Iraq, focusing on the horror of the two American soldiers’ mutilation on Sunday. It leans toward pessimism, but this is allowed because he relies on Kipling’s poetry and character to reflect on the horror of war, especially in the part of the world. Here is Kipling’s poem, "Tommy", and "The Young Birtish Soldier." And, if you are up to it, "The White Man’s Burden."
