The Pacifist’s Double Standard
The headline on today’s Financial Times article about Iraq suffers from a double standard all too common in MSM reporting.
Weekend of slaughter propels Iraq towards all-out civil war.For some reason, continuing violence directed against a population does not constitute a state of war. Only once the population fights back in a systematic way do the evils of war attach. So to avoid war, all you have to do is not fight back against organized killers.
