Fareed Zakaria

Mao & Stalin, Osama & Saddam

Zakaria is repeating one of the central errors in our interpretation of the cold war: treating (historically speaking) our enemies separately. We were fighting one totalitarian ideology in Communism. We did need (still do) more clarity about our own values in the face of those challenges.

Yep. I was hoping it wouldn't make me look like I had a conflict of interest. Go Bobcats!
