The Very Best Of Allen West: Shut Your Mouth. War Is Hell.

EPRESENTATIVE ALLEN WEST (R-Fla.), a former Army lieutenant colonel, sends The Weekly Standard an email commenting on the Marines' video, and has given us permission to publish it. "All these over-emotional pundits and armchair quarterbacks need to chill. Does anyone remember the two Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division who were beheaded and gutted in Iraq?

Newsweek Acknowledges Global War On Christians

The attack, the second major terror incident to hit the Russian capital in less than a year, laid bare the dirty little secret the Kremlin has worked diligently to hide from the world.
