The Voice of Reason
Our 39th President tries to talk some sense to our 43rd in this NY Times Op-Ed piece. Of course, Mr. Carter only hints at, what I think, is the most compelling reason why the Bush doctrine of pre-emption is a bad idea: Invading a sovereign nation without direct provokation is a war crime. What's to stop India from preemptively dropping a nuke because they're afraid of Pakistan? What's to stop North Korea from preemptively dropping a nuke (because they almost have one) on the United States for fear of being next on the "Axis of Evil" hit list?
