Tonight’s Reading Assignment
Austin Bay is back with another incisive column on StrategyPage.
Read the intro, then just try not to read it all:
It’s been a tough six months for knee-jerk anti-Americanism, be it the European elite, Arab street or left-wing academic petite variety.
The pit that was the World Trade Center and 3,000 murders perpetrated by suicidal zealots are hard, fast facts.
While denial of facts has never been a problem for the “blame America” crowd (heck, some arch-left cadres still insist Alger Hiss wasn’t a Soviet spy), the missing Manhattan skyline is simply too explicit. There is no escape from the emptiness, that space in the air.
That’s just the great beginning to a lovely, bitter rip on moral equivalency.
