Arthur, on Korea
“That’s the beautiful thing about fighting a liberal free-market democracy like the United States – even if you win, you lose.”
Or as MasterCard would say:
Ejecting American imperialists out of the country: 2 million dead
Building communist utopia: 1 million refugees, hundreds of thousands of “reeducated” political prisoners, basic human rights suppressed, economy ruined while the rest of Asia is thriving
Admitting after three decades that your stupid communist policies have failed and the experiment is just about over: priceless.
Yesterday’s NY Times front-page full color photo featured women pushing shopping carts, in formation, during the commemorative parade, which included a salute to supermarkets.
Brain fart Mental lapse correction, reader Eric kindly points out Arthur was writing about VietNam, not Korea. Wishful thinking on my part that North Korea would follow!
