Was World War II worth it?

Pat Buchanan steps in it:

If the West went to war to stop Hitler from dominating Eastern and Central Europe, and Eastern and Central Europe ended up under a tyranny even more odious, as Bush implies, did Western Civilization win the war?

In 1938, Churchill wanted Britain to fight for Czechoslovakia. Chamberlain refused. In 1939, Churchill wanted Britain to fight for Poland. Chamberlain agreed. At the end of the war Churchill wanted and got, Czechoslovakia and Poland were in Stalin's empire.

How, then, can men proclaim Churchill 'Man of the Century'?
Intriguing, and why we'll not know if Iraq was the right move for a decade or two.

(I say Buchanan "steps in it" because the camps are not mentioned).

BTW, do you know that we have our very own camps??? Where the Democrats go, once we install our HalliPuppets on the Supreme Court, I suppose...
