CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS ON A.N.S.W.E.R. and its fellow-travelers:
To be against war and militarism, in the tradition of Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, is one thing. But to have a record of consistent support for war and militarism, from the Red Army in Eastern Europe to the Serbian ethnic cleansers and the Taliban, is quite another. It is really a disgrace that the liberal press refers to such enemies of liberalism as “antiwar” when in reality they are straight-out pro-war, but on the other side.
UPDATE: Anti-war journalists think Americans can’t handle the truth.
