Well, who knew those neo-con armchair warriors were this brave?
Michael Ware: Let's look at it this way. I mean, you're sitting back in a comfortable radio studio, far from the realities of this war.
Hugh Hewitt: Actually, Michael, let me interrupt you.
MW: If anyone has a right...
HH: Michael, one second.
MW: If anyone has a right to complain, that's what...
HH: I'm sitting in the Empire State Building. Michael, I'm sitting in the Empire State Building, which has been in the past, and could be again, a target. Because in downtown Manhattan, it's not comfortable, although it's a lot safer than where you are, people always are three miles away from where the jihadis last spoke in America. So that's...civilians have a stake in this. Although you are on the front line, this was the front line four and a half years ago.
Now, before you make fun of poor Hugh, let us also keep in mind that he was probably sitting at a desk -- the same type of furniture that was being used by so many office workers who died in the terrorist attacks of 9/11. And perhaps he was talking on a telephone, just as many of those unfortunate victims were. And -- who knows? -- perhaps he was drinking coffee as were so many of those thousands now dead.
My God! Will the similarities never end?
