Liberal Hawks are Stupid

I don't have time to really break down this post by William Arkin on the Washington Post foreign policy blog. But if you read the whole thing you get an incredibly illuminating glance at just exactly what kind of analysis can pass for "serious."

At the Post, an opinion qualifies as "serious" as long as it accepts no moral or ethical constraints on U.S. foreign policy and concerns itself only with the practical consequences of that policy and its implementation.

In other words, shorter William Arkin:

Melting civilians to death with chemical weapons is bad because it means we might be losing.

Ye gods.
