The resolve to stand firm

I wish our politicians had the intestinal fortitude that one Iraqi policeman displayed in the face of a suicide bomber. Iraq The Model has the story.
...As the vehicle passes through the gate and past the last barricade all of the officers run away seeking shelter…except for one extraordinary man.
One police officer held his position and was still standing in the way of the terrorist and kept on firing his rifle at the windshield until the vehicle was just meters from the officer, then…BOOM.
End of video….

I watched the video over and over again and my amazement grew with every time I watched it…this is incredible…this is heroic…this is happening...
