John Powers of Insight magazine sums up the horrors of Saddam Hussein’s regime. Saddam murdered 400,000 people; but that fact, by itself, doesn’t convey the reality of unbridled sadism that characterized Baathist rule.
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: if liberals want to acknowledge that they simply don’t give a damn about 25 million Iraqis, and out of cynical calculation are content to tolerate a regime that forces suspected political opponents to watch their naked children being stung by scorpions, so be it. But for “antiwar” Democrats and others to pretend that their callousness somehow represents moral superiority is sickening.
