Quote of the Day

Americans will tolerate a lot of casualties in a humanitarian war, just so long as none of them are ours.

-- Peter Beinart
The two responses to this observation are to say that America should be more willing to suffer casualties of our own in a humanitarian cause, and to say that America should be less willing to cause casualties of others even in a purportedly humanitarian cause. Count me in the latter camp.
