Christopher Hitchens on whose
not offering humanitaran help in Iraq. The left cannot bring itself to align with the Iraqi people against a barbaric totalitarian enemy that is almost a caricature of evil. Perhaps Kang was right when he suggested a John Kerry victory was best for the GWOT. Vunerable on national security and wounded by the swiftboat vets, JFK would have followed through on Iraq and brought many on the left with him. Of course, Bush is a safer bet to prosecute the war, but if this is a mushy victory: perhaps JFK would have been in our long-term interest.
