Fabrizio Quattrocchi, Hero

I haven't blogged much at all about the war against the barbarians. I have too much trouble moderating my tone. Anyway, others like James Lileks daily say what I would want to say.

But today I read a little more about Fabrizio Quattrocchi, the 36-year-old pipeline security guard from Italy, who was shot in the neck and killed yesterday by Iraqi "insurgents."

Before he was murdered, he was forced to dig his own grave. He then tried to rip off his hood and shouted, "Now I'll show you how an Italian dies."

The world needs more Fabrizios and fewer psychotic death cult adherents.

Fabrizio Quattrocchi is the epiphany of what an Italian is. That man is a hero, and a symbol of everything Italy represents. As an Italian-American, I praise the steadfast resistance Italy shows to terrorism, and proudly solute Mr. Quattrocchi, his family, the Italian people and president. I am proud to be Italian.
