So what ? Where is it written that we live in a perfect world where everyone is perfect and virtuous?

But we don't live in a perfect world. In fact, I would't even recommend the human race to anyone. Humans suck. Over 20% of humans on the planet want the other 80% to be destroyed or enslaved. And we are living in the 21st century? The space age? The pinnacle of human achievement? A world that is allowing islam to reign supreme unchallenged. Exactly what kind of world do we have to look forward to?

So let's put Churchill back into perspective.

Combing through history looking for "good friends of the Jews" is slim pickin's. Was Charles Martel or Jan Sobieski a good friend of the Jews? But in terms of our current world war against global islamic jihad, I would gladly settle for a leader commited to saving western civilization, like Churchill. In 1940 the stakes were never higher. Hitler vs. Churchill. I'll still take Churchill, warts and all !
