... but he is not the only one. If you needed any proof of American corporate media being staffed with cretins with Ivy League degrees in "journalism", here it is:
Dreamer No. 1 — Ukraine: Winston Churchill. Martin Luther King Jr. Nelson Mandela. Every once in a while, a leader comes along and single-handedly changes the course of history, not through the might of their army or the strength of their economy, but through the power of their words. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is such a leader.
So, there you go. In the same time, I don't understand what Daniel Larison is so wound about. Tom Cotton knows nothing about WW II (he also doesn't know what real war is) as do not most of US "military history" Ph.Ds, and NO American serviceman knows what continental warfare is, least of them Tom Cotton. Larison writes:
It is true that mass bombing of German and Japanese cities in WWII was much worse than what has been happening in Gaza in terms of both intensity and total casualties, but they were undeniably atrocities and after the war the nations of the world committed to outlawing these tactics. The bombings of Dresden and Tokyo were particularly gruesome and appalling, and it speaks volumes about Cotton and others like him that he approves of them.
I don't see what's the problem? The whole pantheon of recent America's "heroes" are one or another variety of war criminals such as late John McCain, or newly croaked good ol' Henry Kissinger.
