"An Unjust War" - is it?
Every now and then I'll post a link to an article from various web sites, and I'll admit I lean heavily towards those on a site I haunt probably a quarter as much as I haunt GLP, that being "nuking politics".

Today I read their long screed called "An Unjust War", and although I certainly agree with them about the need to fight ISIS, I'm not sure I'd characterize that war as being "unjust". I half think their point is that "just/unjust" isn't the point. I wonder...

Oh well, here's the link, and I hope you enjoy it. I did.

Boil it down to the meat and potatoes, all wars are unjust.

Pretty darn wordy, but the punchline is worth it:

"If you're worried about the ramifications of fighting an 'unjust war', just consider the ramifications of losing one."

After rereading the article I think he could have summed it up a bit tighter, but I've read a lot of their articles and "summing up" doesn't seem to be a strong point.

I was pleased to see this IMAO.US gave that article their "Link of the Day", a rare honor which I think they only give out - at most - 365 times in any given year!

I know there's no such thing as a link of the day over here at GLP because we have a (frankly more useful) "pin system" and a thread like this one which essentially just says "hey, you might like this article" isn't worth pinning (seriously, this isn't false modesty, I'm not asking for a pin, and please don't pin this), but if you DO go read "An Unjust War" then of course I hope you enjoy the thing.

I also think it would be a hoot if someone piped up with some disagreement over there. I love the place in general (nukingpolitics.com, that is), but it often seems like an echo chamber. Of course whenever I chime in I add to the echos because I'm one of the like-minded. But still, it would be cool if at least a fraction of the lively debate we have HERE at GLP (on almost any subject) would show its face over there.

I'll stop here or it will sound like I'm trying to steal traffic or beg page views, which ain't the case.

Just skimmed the article - it appears to be some nutter asking us to declare a war on all muslims?

Here is the thing about the punchline - the best way to deal with 'unjust wars' is to not start them in the first place. After 14 years of False Flags and bombing the shit out of the middle east is it any surprise that some muslims really are getting a bit pissed off with it all?
