[editor’s note: this post was “pasted” in — it appeared originally at the old Dawson’s Danube site, which is archived here.]A great Nelson Ascher blog entry.  It starts like this…

When the Argentinian military dictatorship invaded the Falklands in 1982, all my country’s and, by the way, all the Latin American left backed the torturing murderers. Why? Well, because deep in their souls they were angry losers, descendents of the once great Iberian Catholic civilization, lusting for some kind of revenge against the new winners, the English-speaking Protestant world. Though they tried to depict it as some kind of class or anti-imperialistic struggle, their arguments were nothing but bull.

…and it just keeps on goin’ in the right direction.  Read all of it.
