SHERMAN VS. GREENWALD. “Understand that I am a native of Atlanta, taught from the cradle to hate Sherman as a wicked instrument of the War of Northern Aggression. Nevertheless, he had a point: Those who inaugurate war must be prepared to accept the consequences. Hamas decided to begin bombarding Israel, and continued that bombardment despite warnings. Surely Hamas has no right to complain of the predictable consequences. . . . I would remind Glenn Greenwald of the words of Barack Obama’s spiritual mentor, who declared that the 9/11 attacks represented ‘chickens coming home to roost’ for America. Is it not possible, by the same standard, to see the Israeli attacks on Gaza as ‘chickens coming home to roost’ for the Palestinians?”
Meanwhile, what about the Obama Doctrine?
