High on the list of reasons why I like Christopher Hitchins
Christopher Hitchins has a long commentary in Vanity Fair about a young man who died in Iraq. He was a lifelong Democrat and progressive who was moved to join the Army in part by Christopher Hitchins' writing. Christopher Hitchins is a British Socialist who opposes Islamic radicalism and who wrote in favor of the war against Saddam, even if he has qualms about the execution of the continuing war in Iraq. Christoper Hitchins shows in this piece why I admire his writing so much.
