A moral defeat

Re: "Time to drop nuclear bomb on Iran," Michael Coren, (Calgary Sun, Sep. 02, 2006).
He urges nuclear sites in Iran be nuked within weeks -- notwithstanding innocent people, as he candidly says, will perish. Now recall Coren's own definition of terrorism from a 2004 column. "The purposeful murder, abuse and intimidation of people only because they are innocent." In order to further a geopolitical goal, Coren blends what he regards as terrorism's depraved and amoral value-system into his own. Chalk up yet another moral defeat for his side.

(The prospect of unsheathing the nuclear arsenal is horrifying.)
