We here at Tholos get some pretty grueling criticism from a few of our readers on the Right, taking us to task for being so one-sided and UnAmerican. So, in the interest of "fair and balanced" commentary (to paraphrase Fox News), I thought it might be nice to bring in a couple of real red-blooded Americans and let them have their say. So, here it is, unedited, straight from their own mouths:

"I'm getting a little fed up with hearing about, oh, civilian casualties. I think we ought to nuke North Korea right now just to give the rest of the world a warning. I just think it would be fun to nuke them."

--Ann Coulter, in a January interview in The New Yorker.

"Naturally, it's a lot of fun to fight. You know, it's a hell of a hoot. It's fun to shoot people. I'll be right up front with you. I like brawling. You know, you go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn't wear a veil, you know, guys like that ain't got no manhood left anyway. So it's a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them."

--Lt. Gen. James Mattis, speaking to a forum in San Diego about strategies for the war on terror. His comments were met with laughter and applause from the audience.

. . . .And that's the news from the Right. God bless 'em!
