Originally had a post here about the racism of the left, but I think we can take a day off to unify in celebration over the death of Osama bin Laden. Here are a few “ancillary observations” I made over at Ricochet:
1. Killing can be good. “Mercy but murders, pardoning those that kill,” says the Prince in Romeo and Juliet. In other words, there are times when what feels virtuous and gentle is in fact brutal and wrong. One only had to watch TV last night to see the society-wide relief that true justice brings to a people and know that sometimes the only really virtuous action comes out of the barrel of a gun. So peel off those “War is not the answer,” and “Co-exist,” bumper stickers and try one that says, “Death to evildoers.” That’ll spruce up your Prius!
2. How’d we find out about the courier? I understand that the courier who was the final link to the bin Laden compound was discovered four years ago during the interrogation of a prisoner. Just curious: did this interrogation involve waterboarding? Man, that stuff works.
