We’ve written a number of times about the gala evening in New York when we awarded Norman Podhoretz the Power Line Book of the Year award for 2007, for World War IV.
One of the highlights of the evening was Mark Steyn’s speech, in which he highlighted a basic difference between the current war and its predecessors: in World War IV, if that really is what we are fighting, the U.S. has few if any serious allies.
If you haven’t ever listened to Mark, you shouldn’t miss this; he talks pretty much as he writes, with a great deal of humor and a unique ability to harness that humor in service of a very serious argument.
You can download or just listen to Mark’s talk here. Or, as always, you can subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes by going here. Here is a short clip from Mark’s speech:
