Ralph Peters has a column in yesterday’s New York Post that’s one of the best things I’ve read recently: “Intellectuals Lie, the Powerless Die.” Among the gems:
“Brave” columnists wrote countless columns bemoaning the suffering of the Kurds and the Shia under Saddam Hussein. Their earnest paragraphs didn’t save a single life.
Only when better men acted did the surviving victims of one of the world’s worst dictatorships glimpse freedom – an imperfect freedom but better than a mass grave.
As JT would say, read the whole thing.
