If you get a chance to read Pat Buchanan's latest piece on World War II, do it.
I have noted more than once in this space that Nazi eugenics policies were made in America. Today, the policies we fought to destroy in Germany are sixty years ago are firmly ensconced here.
Buchanan points out that our military "victory" in WWII was anything but.
Sure, we killed a small man with a mustache, but all we got in exchange was a Russian with a mustache, a man who was a more skilful despot and killer.
We didn't win WWII.
We lost it, both militarily and philosophically.
But we're so stupid, it's taken us six decades to realize it.
