"The night the seas rushed in"

An apposite update to my two previous posts comes from the incomparable Wretchard at Belmont Club. (All unbeknownst to him, of course; this modest blog doesn't move in such circles.)

"By far the greatest conceit of the late 20th century was that the postmodern world would never again suffer the lash of planetary cataclysms; that we were past any tests nature might administer; exempt from the consequences of stupidity. Only an international political class secure in its own invincibility could have thrown such scraps as the UN provides to the people of the Third World and demanded such peremptory obedience of the US, as if it were exempt from the laws of physics; men too precious to perish by fire or water."

Update No. 2: From them what as knows.
