...The One-Minute Pundit
Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Twenty-five years ago today the Soviet Union atom-bombed its own people. Oh yes, incompetents did it by pushing the wrong buttons, and of course they didn't mean to do it, but the effect was exactly the same. It unmasked Communism's cheap cruel attitude toward life for even the useful idiots. It, as even the supposed hero Gorbachev or Ronald Reagan could not do, brought an evil empire down. The cost was ghastly, and long after the Soviet Union ceases to be a bad blood-stained memory innocents will pay the price cleaning up for incompetents, and for the Devil's system that rewarded them.
