Michael Ignatieff thinks hard about extraordinarily difficult issues and comes to ideas I dont always agree with. His remarks
on The Lesser Evil: Hard Choices in a War on Terror are necdessary reading. One sidebar: it includes a passage on Palestinian activities including suicide bombing which are what one of our MPS should have said to make her original point clear.
Ignatieff makes a core case on civillian immunity being the value we need to rescue as a priority in this bloody time. On this I agree though for my part I would say we need go further and to rethink the justification of 'collateral damage' in official warfare.
