People are going to look at it from both sides. Ultimately I think it sent a very strong message to show that the Czech people were up for a fight and weren't willing to be treated in that way, i think if I was in that position myself, I probably would have done the same thing. I have a strong understanding of why people see it the other way based on events afterwards. But for me, ultimately they had to do what they had to do.
I'd say that the events that unfolded on August 2nd 2006 and days afterwards where we lost much better warriors than I, much braver and selfless, that those were much more formative in shaping what I do and will do for the rest of my life.

Well, I think we all did.
