  1. It reminds me of something Lt. Speirs said in the movie Band of Brothers (I’m paraphrasing) “There is some value in having the men think you are the meanest SOB in whole company.”

  2. Further, “proportionality” refers to the use of force commiserate with political objectives.

    Defenders of Hamas in the Gaza war use “proportionality” to refer to an equality of causalities, or something equally nonsensical.

  3. Instead of worrying about proportionality of casualties, we’d be better off worrying about proportionality our own response. Helping Gazan refugees get out (with thorough searches of their belongings for weapons) and resupplying Gazan hospitals (including outside staff who aren’t Hamas sympathizers), all under Red Cross/Red Crescent auspices might be a good start.

  4. “I don’t know what the quality is, but CafePress has a poster version of this. [1]” (TDAXP)

    Nice! I know just where I’ll put it!
