"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

Merry Christmas Taliban!!

Without question, this is the picture of the day!!

A group of British Marines in Afghanistan, participating in a carol service, were interrupted by Taliban gun fire. Quickly responding with suppressing fire and mortar rounds, they sustained zero casualties. The interesting aspect of the picture is that they responded with festive hats in tow. After the 45 minute skirmish concluded, they returned to the singing of carols and planned festivities. Maybe that will make some of you stop and appreciate what you have these next few days, rather than complain about traffic or weather or presents or family members.

Just think, some Taliban were probably injured or dying listening to the Marines sing 'Deck the Halls'! Brings a smile to my face!! Hoorah!
