13. No wonder the US won't sign on to the international court...
It might inhibit open talk of war crimes by editorialists.

Pakistan might attack India too... should we go ahead and invade preemptorily there too, because "it would be better if we attack (India) than if (Pakistan) attacks (India)"?

Russia might attack Georgia again. Should we maybe attack Georgia first, because "it would be better if we attack (Georgia) than if (Russia) attacks (Georgia)"? Or should we maybe attack Russia, for the converse reason?

And... what the fuck criteria is being used to determine "better" vs. "worse" here??
