When talking about why he spent so much effort fighting Chinese communists while Japanese troops pressed deeper and deeper into the Chinese heartland, Chinese nationalist Chiang Kai Shek (Jiang Jieshi in pinyin) said that Japan was a disease of the skin, while the Communists were a disease of the heart.

I thought of that quote when I heard about Dinesh D'Souza's new book on terrorism. You see, Al Qaeda is attacking us because of the "cultural left." Rather than read the book take a look at this Washington Post review which ends thusly: "This time, let's just not bother with the flap; this dim, dishonorable book isn't worth it."
