I wanted to say something else about the Margaret Hassan issue today, but my brain is blank and I really have no words. So, like I do so often, I'll just let one of my favorite bloggers do the talking:
"[Liberals] think that the actions of the men who did this are, in some way, rational, as retribution for sanctions or the war. This has NOTHING to do with sanctions. This has to do with some evil bastards who want to destroy everything that liberal western democratic society has to offer, and they are willing to execute anyone or commit any atrocity in order to achieve that goal. To the men who commit these acts there is absolutely no difference between a warmongering American and a pacifist Brit. In both cases we embody everything that they despise, and both will be treated with equal levels of contempt and hatred."
