Only My Munichs

Matt Welch over at Reason Online enjoys a romp through the arrogance of the Left.

It can be difficult to stomach the hypocrisy of Soros:

"I believe we were justified in intervening in Kosovo without U.N. authorization, and we would have done better if we had relied on NATO and not the United Nations in Bosnia," Soros writes. "But unilateral action that goes against international public opinion cannot be justified, and it can endanger our national security by turning the world against us." Unfortunately, Soros does not explain how we might quantify this "international public opinion," or come up with a Plan B when the world is acting particularly daft. If European public opinion had won the day in March 1999, Soros’ Kosovo war never would have been fought.

A good read.
