    "Colonel Scott had ordered that steel helmets would not be worn, though they were carried strapped to the Guardsmen's equipment for the expected artillery retaliation next morning. He says:
    'I Believed that the guardsmen would feel better morale-wise with their berets and cap-badge. It would also help with identification; anyone seen with a helmet on would be an Argentinian.'
    That's right up there with "condoms encourage promiscuity" and "seatbelts cause dangerous driving"
    Take these men and women for your example.
    Like them, remember that posterity can only
    be for the free; that freedom is the sure
    possession of those who have the
    courage to defend it.
    Liberty is being free from the things we don't like in order to be slaves of the things we do like.
    If you're not ready to die for it, put the word freedom out of your vocabulary.
