poverty of American liberalism: the case of Nicholas Kristof

Look at this liberal case of this American columnists who brags that he "saves" brown and black "girls" in Africa and Asia from their male oppressors:  "But in conjunction with diplomacy, military force can save lives."  This sums it up.  I mean, that was exactly the logic of George W. Bush.  And of course, he does what every US supporter of war does: cites the authority of one Syrian in support: "We ask for God’s help in ending this, and Obama’s,” she said."  Anecdotal evidence reported by the White Man always trumps any other available evidence from the natives.  But he concludes his article by deep insights about Syrian politics and society--you have to admit:  "Look, Syria is going to be a mess, whatever we do."
