No Suprise

Michael Barone:

I am struck by the sublime indifference of most critics of Bush's Iraq policy to the fate of the Iraqi people. They are totally unexultant about the overthrow of a vicious dictatorship and seem to have no interest at all in what would happen to Iraqis if we leave suddenly.

I don't understand why anybody as knowledgeable as Barone would be at all surprised. The western Left didn't give a tinker's damn for the fates of the Iranians, Lebonese, Nicaraguans, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Koreans, Cubans, Czechs, Hungarians, Poles, or even Russians, so long as the eeeevil American right-wingers were dealt a political defeat (and let's not even start on Israelis).

Why should anybody be surprised thay they could now care less about Iraqis?
