A Real Man

Often when a person is put in a set of horrible and totally unfair circumstances his or her true colors show, for better or for worse. In the case of this Italian taken hostage in Iraq, he proved to be a Real Man to the end:

"This boy, as the assassins were pointing the gun at him, tried to take off his hood and shouted: 'Now I'll show you how an Italian dies' ... he died as a hero."
Here's a guy who went down fighting. This man understood what the South Korean hostage does (did) not: These animals are going to kill you whether you beg for you life or not. They have no compassion for fellow human beings for the very simple reason that they have given up all claim to the title 'Human Being'.

I can only hope that brave actions like those of Fabrizio Quattrocchi and all those who would fight evil eventually result in dissuading or killing all of these animals.


Upon further consideration I think that Fabrizio Quattrocchi deserves inclusion under "Ideas That Stand The Test Of Time" [renamed "Outstanding Honor"]. His words will forever ring in my ear whenever I hear some limp-wristed appeaser whining: Let's just stop making the Terrorists mad and maybe they'll leave us alone.
