Austrian Writer gets it

Bill Dawson, an American living in Vienna, links to an article in the Austrian magazine Format, in which writer Christian Ortner takes to task the German and Austrian intellectual, anti-American crowd for their sneering towards the Anglo-American efforts in Iraq, while simultaneously ignoring the 10,000+ dead in France (from the heat wave). He pulls a pair of quotes from the piece:

France's poor and old would probably have had a better chance to survive in Baghdad than in Paris


The ignorance of the political class led to more deaths than the U.S. war against Saddam Hussein.

He quotes several sections from the article (no link), and adds some relevant commentary of his own. Give it a look.
