A truly great American was lost to us yesterday.
Jeane Kirkpatrick was indeed a great American patriot.
Two earlier posts about her provide reflections on her wisdom:

RIP, Ambassador Kirkpatrick.
Here is more:
One of her seminal articles was Dictatorships & Double Standards. H/T to PowerLine for the link.
Bill Buckley wrote St. Jeane of the U.N. in 1984.
Kirkpatrick herself wrote Target America: The United States is in the sights of rogue states in 1999.

Some warm recollections of Kirkpatrick in Iron Lady: Remembering Jeane Kirkpatrick.
The passing of Jeane Kirkpatrick reminds us once again that our Greatest Generation of Diplomats are passing quickly from the scene and at a time in our history when we most need those in possession of their intelligence and strength.
Sadly we are lacking those giants in today’s world.
A frightening time.
