The white phosphorus pseudo-scandal has made visible, again, that opponents of war support that very institution. What, after all, are conventions against horribly destroying civilians in the act of war, but definitions of what sort of war is acceptable?
War should not be acceptable. The horror of it, if unhidden, will be our impetus to make war preventable.
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et al., are war criminals, not because they use white phosphorus, but because they invade countries, unprovoked.
