that's what you get stuntin' on my block, show-off:
I could reply to Mike O'Hanlon's retarded op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, but it wouldn't be as good as what Ilan Goldenberg wrote. I will however flag this:
Franklin Roosevelt, for example, talked often with Joseph Stalin during World War II. That helped in the allies' coordination of military activities, but this contact did nothing to mitigate the brutality and ruthlessness of Soviet expansionism in the aftermath of the war.
And that was the point of Teheran, Yalta, et al, how exactly?
--Spencer Ackerman
I also wonder if O'Hanlon perhaps faults FDR for dying prior to the war ending, limiting his ability to influence the postwar policies of the USSR.
