Laurence:  This Marine colonel’s response may be a good example of psychological projection (i.e., attributing to others feared characteristics of his own).  What is more “cowardly” than being unwilling to deny the authority one allows others to have over you; what pretense of being “noble” can top the slaughter of others in the name of advancing “democracy,” ending “tyranny,” or advancing the “freedom” of those being killed?  How can any person be said to be promoting “freedom” when he is in conflict not only with others, but within himself?
