This “best of” item from July 2007 was the number-one all-time most popular posting on Likelihood of Success since I started it in March — nearly 8,000 pageviews, the result of a particularly fortuitous Instalanche. Considering the rise of Barack Obama right now, and the deafening silence from candidates such as Obama on the Left regarding Iraq, this post perhaps still has something to say.
It’s a nice political point to score on him, but give him points for honesty. “Never again” is the Big Lie of the second half of the twentieth century. Tonight, on the eve of the 65th anniversary of the deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto to Treblinka, we must be honest: If we knew then what we know now, about the mass killings, the gas chambers, the sick human experimentation, the crematoria — if we knew it were going on right now …
America, and the rest of the world, would not do a damned thing about it.
Indeed, as the official position of the Left, including its handmaiden the mainstream press, becomes “we would not have agreed to fight in Iraq if Bush had not lied to us about weapons of mass destruction” — however absurd a lie that is; and this is combined with the turning away from events in Darfur, and elsewhere; and it is combined, too, with the essential silence of the “world community” in the face of genocide and mass murder, especially of the despised — the niggers of the world, whether black and Jew or even, if the politics of it is right, Arab — the horrible truth becomes ever more clear:
“We” simply do not care.
