OpinionJournal - The Western Front: "Virtually every attack on American soldiers has drawn a response from coalition forces. The world is seeing that now--after the downing of three American helicopters, including a Black Hawk--with the strikes by F-16s with precision guided 500-pound bombs. Iraq hasn't been the scene of such massive American firepower since April. The enemy is being made to pay a hefty price for each and every attack."

I do and I don't agree with Mr. Miniter. To some extent, I have been wondering why we never hear about what's done after each of these attacks to prevent the next one. At the same time, however, look at Israel's retaliatory attacks on the Palestinians. Despite the fact that every one of these is in response to a specific palestinian attack, the Israeli's are portrayed as murderers every time. Perhaps the Press is more sympathetic to Palestinians than to Iraqi's opposed to the occupation, but by how much? Are we willing to push them to cover these strikes at the risk that they might be held as over-the-top?
