My bid to out-gloom Stanley Kurtz’s gloomy hawkishness has been raised and called by several readers, taking issue with my assertion that after some Western city has been nuked, there will at last be a consensus for military action. No there won’t, these readers argue. After a few more years of multi-culti sappiness and govt. taking responsibility for our lives, there will never be a consensus on military action ever again.
That a nation’s will to defend itself really can sink that low, is not in doubt: look at Spain’s response to the Madrid bombings. That this could happen to the U.S.A., I am reluctant to believe.
I am glad to know, though, that there are scenarios even gloomier than the one I outlined. Makes me feel quite cheerful.
