WARTIME LOYALTIES….Chris Bertram has a terrific post today about wartime loyalties. The bottom line? During the Falklands War America’s support was tepid at best, while in many ways “Mitterrand and the French were our greatest allies.”
Our petulant demands that everyone support our wars wholeheartedly would be a little more credible if we were willing to do the same for our allies. But we aren’t, are we?
