This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

I'm Starting to Sound like Geroge Will, Ack! Slippery Slopes Everywhere!

Lieberman says Bush mishandling of Iraq 'threatens to give a bad name to a just war':
"'There's a danger there will be a misimpression sent about the historic Democratic Party record of being strong on security,' Lieberman said, 'going back to Wilson, and Roosevelt and Truman and Kennedy and Clinton.'

Asked whether he was losing the debate within the party about the war, reflected in the recent rise in popularity of anti-war candidate Howard Dean, Lieberman responded: 'The battle has just begun,' he said. 'It won't officially begin until next year when the primaries begin, that's why I'm speaking out now.' "

Lieberman finds himself in a sticky situation. Which is the case when you find that you are arguing that this war was "just" but undertaken for the wrong reasons. Would we take the same position if the police were to use illegal methods to catch a criminal? Would we pardon them for unwarranted searches, wiretaps and maybe even the unlawful detainment of innocent people as long as the criminal was caught. We wouldn't, and there is a simple reason for this. Precedent. Once you give a pass for a war executed under false pretences then you must always accept that the ends justify the means, a concept that we have rejected in modern societies. This is the old "law of the land" that we have discarded because of the obvious consequences that follow this doctrine. Abuses always follow when you apologize after the fact. Lieberman tries to walk a fine line, critizing the methods but ultimately saying that the end was justified. Dean has a stronger position, having always said that the war was not justified under the given set of premises.
