Nothing says humanitarian like the aerial bombardment of population centers and the harrassment of retreating units.
Interesting to watch them attempt to draw the fine distinctions, though:
“There’s a difference between calling out aircraft and indiscriminately strafing and bombing your own cities,” [Hillary Clinton] said, “and police actions that frankly have exceeded the use of force that any of us would want to see.”What a fucking catastrophe. What a nightmare. I am somewhat astonished to find myself proven wrong in one regard, however. I predicted that Obama would bring a certain cold-blooded competence to the business of empire, a managerial discipline that the sprawling, gaudy, sententious Bush junta lacked. I was wrong. In retrospect, Rumsfeld and Cheney and all the villains of that unlamented regime are beginning to look positively professional.
