Sergeant Dale L. Horn helps locals protect villages, get fresh water, is rewarded with five sheep, a bit of land, and is asked to take a local girl as a second wife.
Sheiks, or village elders, are known as the real power in rural Iraq. And the 5-foot-6-inch Floridian's ascension to the esteemed position came through humor and the military's need to clamp down on rocket attacks.
But, but, but . . . we're losing the war, it's a quagmire, the Iraqis hate us! I know it's true 'cause the Dems and the mainstream media say so, and they'd never ever lie, would they?
