Even for a regular...
I am a regular when it comes to listening to NPR. But today, they have been streaming the BBC news of Arafat's funeral.... oh God! I could not take their weeping and wailing anymore and had to turn it off. I mean, seriously, the guy was a murderer. And to the end, he did not do much to make amends for his past deeds. Sure, there are millions who love him, admire him. But then, I could show you millions who admired and loved any villain you may care to choose in history. Hitler, Stalin, OBL, Idi Amin.... which one of these would you weep over? And yet, they were all great leaders for their own crowds.
If this is what is Western liberalism, and the alternative is Bush Nation, God save us All!
