Victor Davis Hanson is dead on-target with “The Mirror of Fallujah“, his brutally honest take on the mess that is the Arab/Muslim world:
Rather the global village is beginning to see that the violence of the Middle East is not aberrant, but logical. Its misery is not a result of exploitation or colonialism, but self-induced.
If we are to try to bring some good to the Middle East, then we must first have the intellectual courage to confess that for the most part the pathologies embedded there are not merely the work of corrupt leaders but often the very people who put them in place and allowed them to continue their ruin.
I’m glad the folks in the White House read his stuff.
