The coldness with which Huffington said, "So what?" to the slaughtering of Kurds in Saddam Hussein's genocidal fury speaks volumes about the heart liberals have today-- or don't have.
They hate America so much that they don't care if our friends and allies are killed off too. It is just sickening.
Apart from proving what a narrow minded and cold-hearted person she is, she also pointed out how ignorant she is about history. While Saddam's tanks were perched on the border in hopes that he could cross to further destroy the Kurds, there was no opportunity to rebuild the Kurdish region. When the Clinton Administraion considered for a time ending the no-fly zone protection, the Kurds were panicked that Saddam's tanks would attack. Fortunately, hearings in the U.S. Senate stopped it and saved the Kurds. Economic opportunity came only when Saddam's regime was crushed.
That is why the Kurds are appreciative for America's support. It is also why a recent poll showed 92% of Kurds have a favorable opinion of the United States -- a far higher per centage that Berkeley, Cambridge, Santa Monica and New Haven!
