Iran, Abu Ghraib and the "War on Terror"
Noumenal Self has an excellent philosophical analysis
of what the Bush Administration is doing vis a vis Iran. He also manages to tie it back in to the failed polices in Iraq and our use of torture.
His conclusion sums it up nicely:
The lesson of all of this is that we are in a moral conflict with Islam, and moral conflicts cannot be fought by stealth. We cannot behave like moral cockroaches, scurrying away into hiding whenever the light comes on. Evil must be confronted in the full light of day, and fully unapologetically. Otherwise, it is evil that will become unapologetic and feel free to work in broad daylight. That's not something we want in the daylight of our cities.
