POSTED RESPONSE TO COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

United States policy in the region is sick.

It chooses which tyrant to support and which to oppose, having nothing to do with a free society’s ideal of opposing all tyranny.

Of course, that is exactly what it did through the entire Cold War, supporting tyrant after tyrant – Marcos, Ceausescu, Pinochet, Thieu, and many others – as it chased the great white whale of communism.

Now, it has merely substituted forms of Islam for communism, and it continues its same twisted and mindless quest to remake the world to its liking.
