If you can't beat the enemy, become the enemy

Well, this is probably all around the Internet now, but here's a depressing story about the US military's latest information-gathering tactic in Iraq- kidnapping the wives and children of suspected insurgents and holding them hostage until the suspects turn themselves in. What's next then? Do we start beheading their wives on video and sending the tapes to al-Jazeera? If we're doing away with the Geneva Conventions, let's not half-ass it, eh?

One good note to all of this- the moral highground, long vacant, is now available for rent or sublease.
