From lewrockwell.com. Released under the GFDL ...Lew Rockwell regularly features Paul Craig Roberts’ commentary — so long as it fits his anti-state narrative. When it doesn’t, despite being meritorious, it doesn’t get included for very transparent reasons.

No surprise, then, that we don’t find this February 14, 2013 Paul Craig Roberts article, While Left and Right Fights — Power Wins, published by LewRockwell.com in the intervening days.

Indeed, George W. Bush was actually correct that there was an Iraq War “coalition of the willing” consisting of non-Anglo countries, no matter how relatively puny that contingent was.
