Default Re: Lessons Learned: Iraq War Redux? (Robert Wright & Heather Hurlburt)

A general comment: Way too many people here have never tried to actually reason out the difference between defense and aggression in just war theory. They are both violent but are opposites in a moral sense. One is morally unjustified - the other is completely justified. Do some reading.
Yeah, you know what, I don't care. I don't go in for a lot of philosophizing about who's the aggressor and who's more honorable and so forth. The only thing I'm interested in is seeing the Palestinians and Israelis both having secure and independent states.

When dealing with any state that uses threats of aggression and actual aggression to get its way - taking defensive war to contain them off the table would be stupid.
I'm not suggesting the US should do anything, I'm just asking if the same logic applies to US with regard to Iran as it does to the Palestinians with regard to Israel.
