Ace nails the hypocrisy of the left on the slaughter in Burma:
It's a Good War, to liberals and chin-strokers, because the US is doing absolutely nothing there to abate slaughter and tyranny. Which makes reporters and academics effectively our "front line" of defense -- which is how they want it. Their "defense" amounts for nothing, of course, and saves no lives and destroys no tyrant's bunkers, but they get to be the stars of this do-nothing immorality play, which is better than the non-college-educated morons in the US military who got stuck in Iraq getting to be the stars.
So we can all cluck, cluck about how horrible this all is and pretend that it matters a whit that we are collectively "horrified."
Read the whole thing.
