Great Minds Think Alike

Wretchard at The Belmont Club looks at four seemingly unconnected events and sums up with:

"This survey of events suggests (and it just my opinion) that the real strategic danger to the cause of freedom and democracy isn't from the noisemakers of the Left but from the temptation to betray principles for tactical gain. It lies on the very same path that Galloway, Martin and Newsweek, in their cunning, have taken. The Left hitched its wagon to the worst men of the 20th and 21st century and it is dragging them into the dustbin of history. Let's go the other way."

Amen, brother Wretchard.

Michael Totten, fresh back from Lebannon, looks at just Uzbekistan and instead of lamenting missing the pro-democracy changes in Syria, calls for change in our policy in Uzbekistan quoting George Bush:

"For decades, free nations tolerated oppression in the Middle East for the sake of stability. In practice, this approach brought little stability and much oppression, so I have changed this policy."

Amen brothers George and Michael.

Thanks brother Jim for the info.
