The ugliest of the ugly, the sickest of the sick, masquerading as good. The 'foreign intervention' dignifier.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Pale Riders writes "But my poor jaw had not yet done descending. For Digby, astonishingly, goes on to offer one of those arguments for state murder and the Nuremberg-level war crime of carrying out "dirty wars" on the sovereign territory of other nations: "One can, at least, say they represent some form of modern warfare and that the President of a military Empire is always going to be required to deal in such ugly matters." Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Riders explains "Now, I'm sure we are all to understand that Digby herself wouldn't make that argument. But she does see its point. She thinks it's something that can be debated. She might not like it, she might even oppose it (while of course never opposing the continuation of its perpetrator in power). But from the gritty, savvy realpolitik perspective that our earnest progressive liberals are always so keen to show they understand and appreciate, you can certainly make that argument and remain within the bounds of respectable debate in Digby's eyes."

Removal of resistance: Let's make this easy for YOU to understand. Imagine you are about to be tortured or killed by a death squad or something - or by a drone. Is the debate "who is it fair to kill like that?" a 'debate' worthy of an ethical human society?????? Eh? Unification: Riders points out "Wholesale murder, wanton destruction, untold - and unnecessary - anguish and grief and suffering and turmoil: these things can be borne, if reluctantly, by our liberal progressive peace--lovers. But torture - that, apparently, is the one thing that is beyond the pale. And in this particular case, it is not even torture being carried out by the Obama administration."
