Many rightwingers I know are intelligent and often caring people. But in foreign affairs any hint of objectivity just falls apart. Rightwingers fret and fume over the imprisonment of a few dissidents by leftwing regimes. But when did you ever hear an Australian rightwinger complain about the far worse activities of US supported death squads in Latin America? Even diehard leftists admitted to dismay over Moscow’s interventions in Eastern Europe. When did we get to hear any mea culpas from the Right over the far more brutal US interventions in Indochina and elsewhere?
