Today's required reading: First, the Heritage Foundation's Joseph Loconte rightly assails the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. The entire U.N. is a joke -- a place where murderous, despotic regimes hold equal power with representative democracies -- but the UNCHR is even worse.
Second, The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan addresses yesterday's brutal horror in the Iraqi town of Falluja.
The terrible pictures of the charred bodies on the bridge cannot be erased, and no one who saw them is going to forget them. But they can in time come to be accompanied by other pictures--of determined U.S. Marines, for instance, rounding up the men who massed on the bridge under the bodies, and brandished their weapons, and laughed.
Read them both.
