Bryan Caplan is not afraid to ask the hard questions.
In hindsight, I’m amazed that people who don’t think twice about killing conscripts (or even civilians) are so reluctant to justify violence against serial killer statesmen. What could be less objectionable than trying to stop mass murder by killing the specific individuals most responsible for it?
Actually, come to think of it, it’s not really a hard question at all. The hard question is, What are these numbwits thinking that are so opposed to terminating psychopaths like bin Laden, Assad, Chavez, Morales, and Achmedinijad? It goes beyond stupid.
