And, yes, it does indeed serve to lessen the enormous sacrifices that American and British soldiers endured to stop a monstrosity like National Socialism...

Why hasn't Hanson mentioned the enormous sacrifices of the Russians and Soviets of which the American and British losses pale in comparison? This is par for the course in the lexicon of the neocons. You see, the Russkies are on the outs because of their dealings with Iran AND for trying to recover some of their national wealth which was looted by the oligarchs who share, let us say, certain similarities with the founders of the neocon movement.

Always helps to read something in its entirety before yowling about "neocons":

And while the Soviet government was a vile and evil entity, millions of Red Army soldiers were not communists, but brave patriots who did much to stop the Wehrmacht, and, yes, by their efforts did save allied lives. Again, they fought for a horrendous government, but the motivation for many was not global communism or Comrade Stalin who had butchered millions of their families and friends, but to rid German soldiers from the soil of Mother Russia.

What are those "certain similarities?" Why are you being evasive?

Behold, a self-fulfilling prophecy - a post to bemoan the ad hominem, filled with... you guessed it! Who would’ve guessed that the “diversity” of opinion on a PJB thread @ FR would correlate with the frequency of choosing which weapon to attack?
You will need to tread carefully, or you will get “Charles Johnson’ed.”
