Victor Davis Hanson at NRO:
“Forget the tales that will come from postbellum Iraq of the liberation of thousands, of decades of mass murder, of Hussein’s destruction of the environment, of the caches of terrible weapons, and of the stability a reformed Iraq will bring for Europe—instead, for Europeans the only story will be bad American hyper-puissance. Indeed, such is the sad state of affairs that we are surprised less that our so-called friends are no longer allies, than that they are not yet overt enemies.”
I’m just wondering. On this side of the Atlantic we read more every day about the near hysteria on the left as war approaches, and more information every day from the other side about seething anti-Americanism in “old Europe.”
How long do you think before we get reports about French thugs desecrating the graves of American soldiers at Normandy?
