Second Lesson

"The execution of the sinners was necessary to confirm Moses’ authority.”

-Michael Ledeen, author of screeds and co-author of the smash-hit, "The War on Turr" (quote taken from Machiavelli on Modern Leadership: Why Machiavelli’s Iron Rules Are as Timely and Important Today as Five Centuries Ago (Truman Talley Books (St. Martin’s Press), 1999)


Michael Ledeen has been hanging around Washington, DC for many years now. He was involved in the Iran arms scandal of the 1980's, is now involved in the Niger yellowcake forgery scandal - along with some shady Iranians, Iraqis, Israelis and Italians (how he manages to keep his job, I'll never know) - and is pushing quite hard for a US attack on Iran.

Those malefactions are just scratching the surface.

Michael Ledeen reminds us about terrorists and Islamofascists with great alarm and frequency (he may have even coined the word Islamofascist). If one of his beloved Islamofascists said, "The execution of the sinners was necessary to confirm Mohammed’s authority", could we tell the difference between Ledeen and the Islamofascists?

Or is it only our neo-fascists that are kosher?

Second Lesson: WWII did not defeat Fascism. It only gave it a home across the ocean.

This is a very welcome and very interesting blog. I will definitely be coming back regularly.
