What Would Today’s Journal-Sentinel Editors Have Said About D-Day?

From the Wigderson Library & Pub, a response to a Journal-Sentinel editorial lauding the D-Day invasion of Normandy, which begin the liberation of Nazi-occupied Europe.

Suppose today’s Journal-Sentinel editors had been around then, Wigderson asks. He suggests the editorial might have sounded like this:
Without any evidence of an imminent threat to the United States, the administration has tied itself to a fragile regime in Britain on the one hand and a totalitarian regime in the Soviet Union. Are either of these two regimes worth sacrificing thousands of American lives?

The administration thinks we have forgotten that Germany had nothing to do with the attack on December 7th. The administration uses December 7th as a club over the heads of their political enemies and to justify attacks on this country’s civil liberties.
You get the idea.
