The Perverse Western mourning for Evil Incarnate by Melanie Phillips


Howling that Trump had provoked another world war, progressives totally ignored the fact that for the past four decades, Iran had been waging war against the West and Israel and anyone who stood in its way. Instead, they viewed Soleimani as a murder victim to be mourned while Trump was the war criminal.

Trump has now laid down his red line: If you attack America, you will be destroyed. The same cannot be said for Britain and Europe. Their aversion to fighting back has turned their populations, with countless Iranian terrorist sleeper cells in their midst, into sitting ducks.
