The Lion

Do yourself a favor and read this story from today’s Washington Post about the late Doug Zembiec. Everyone knew the iconic and humble “Lion of Fallujah” was killed in Baghdad in 2007; very few knew he was died which trying to do a snatch-and-grab while working for the Ground Branch of the CIA’s Special Activities Division.

You can order your men into battle, but you can’t order them to love you. Best quote from the Post story, from a Marine who served with Zembiec during the First Battle of Fallujah: “If we had to go back in there, I’d follow him in with a spoon.”

About Chairman Mao

I like fomenting socialist revolutions and purging my homeland of pseudo-intellectualism and capitalist dogma. I also like sports, dogs and food (although I wouldn't consider myself a foodie).
