The Mass Murder of Women and Children in Gaza is Just Fine and Dandy
So says neocon war propagandist Victor Davis Hanson. The reason he gives for this, of course, is that Lincoln did it to Southerners in the 1860s; therefore, it must be the moral high road. He praises the Israeli army as being “Shermanesque,” following in the footsteps of the mass murderer of Southern women and children who rarely, if ever, confronted Confederate soldiers during his famous “march” of rape, pillage, and plunder. Hanson praises Sherman for avoiding soldiers and murdering civilians instead, which he calls “humiliation.” He also lies through his teeth, claiming that Sherman never touched any Southern property of the lower or middle classes, only the plantation owners and the Confederate government.
