Brad Delong links to a posting by Michael Bérubé regarding Noam Chomsky's latest tendentious rewriting of the history of the wars of Yugoslav secession and Milosevic's responsibility for said. It goes without saying that the tendency identified by Delong for a certain subset of progressives to idolize Milosevic as a defender of the last remnant of non-aligned Europe against vicious international capitalism is bad, not least because this quickly shades over into generalized Islamophobia. Camus was not making policy recommendations when he wrote of killing Arabs, people.
