Looking carefully at that which is unseen.

Thinking about: Irony

As a politician you have to be immune to irony and hypocrisy, or else you would drive yourself crazy. Still, there is something to be said for the legal principle of stare decisis – “that which has gone before” or something like that – and let me make sure I understand the scenario here:

SSG Robert Bales plotted an attack that killed innocent Afghan civilians.

SSG Robert Bales is being sheltered in another nation.

Afghan authorities have demanded he be given to them.

The sheltering nation has refused.

Seems to me that Afghanistan is now justified, based on precedent established in international law, in bombing the living crap out of Washington DC and the entire East Coast and then landing troops to shoot the snot out of whatever’s left.

I wonder if they can assemble a Coalition Of The Willing to make it happen.
