What Makes a Hero be a Hero?

I ran across this while doing research today: "Study Looks at What Personal Qualities Make a War Hero" FOXNews (November 12, 2007).

'Everybody knows' that heroes are charismatic rebels. That's the way it is in the movies. Real life is different. Quiet types with a capacity forloyalty and selfless actions become heroes, too.

It's an article worth reading.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
