Warmonger Humanitarian

I came back to the office to find the web browser opened to this article, so I went on ahead and read it.

Anyone who actually believes that Bush & co. are humanitarians is on more drugs than your average touring funk band, if you’ll pardon a theft from a dead comedian. (Sorry, Bill Hicks.)

Pitching a little against AIDS—and it is a little, when you’re still protecting drug companies’ profits—doesn’t undo one’s explicit lying in order to start a war in a country basically unrelated to the faction that attacked you. If you’re a lying, profiteering warmonger, you’re unable to be a humanitarian.

Whereas, if you actually save military force for a last option, you might be deserving of the term.
