America's Shame

The left makes it a practice to denigrate America. I believe this is the greatest country on earth, but if there is a moment that should make Americans hang their collective head, it's when we allowed the Soviets to crush Hungarian freedom seekers fifty years ago.

As the linked article notes, many of them were sentenced to death by the Soviets, for nothing more than having the courage to try to shake off the yoke of communist oppression.

Little is said about the fact that America turned its back on the Hungarians. But the lesson should be an instructive one, as the Democrats continue to insist on cutting and running in Iraq.

Let's make sure we don't do to the Iraqis what we did to the Hungarians -- abandon them to the tender mercies of totalitarians who hate freedom.

True - but we had a couple of excuses: 1) We actually couldn't stop the Red Army from rolling into Budapest, and 2) We were busy stopping British, French, and Israeli tanks from rolling into Cairo!

Roe v Wade is another reason to hang our collective heads.
