"WE ARE HIS NEMESIS": From the Weekly Standard, a great battlefield speech by Lt. Col. Tim Collins of Britain's Royal Irish Regiment; try to think in a Northern Irish accent when you read it. There's also a good battlefield speech by Maj. Gen. J.N. Mattis of the United States Marine Corps at the same link, but the Maj. Gen. lacks Lt. Col. Collins's flair for rhetorical florishes. The print edition of the Weekly Standard also includes a picture of Collins smoking a small cigar and generally looking like the coolest man who has ever walked on this planet, but it isn't online.
