Could We Give Iraq to the Indians?


In this wide-ranging and, despite my better judgment, stirring roundup of final preparations, the 3rd Infantry Division's Capt. Philip Wolford unexpectedly channels Katha Pollitt:

One company commander led his troops in a Seminole war dance, and told the men to remove the American flags that fluttered from the tops of the tanks because "we will be entering Iraq as an army of liberation, not domination…so it would not be right to go in with the American flag flying."

That must be what the Seminoles were thinking when Andy Jackson rolled into Florida.
