As important as it is to root out torture once and for all, the U.S. now faces far more serious threats: a North Korean invasion of South Korea, a breakdown of Pakistan and loss of control of its weapons, a Swine flu pandemic, an Israeli attack on Iran, and a global economic disaster as a consequence of any of the above?!
I would hate to be Obama facing all of the these.
“A war is just if there is no alternative, and the resort to arms is legitimate if they represent your last hope.” (Livy cited by Machiavelli)
