Moral Equivalence

Compare the experiences of the British and the Iraqis in this 'War Against Terror':

In both cases, a foreign people, of whom they know little and with whom they have no real argument, have come from afar and killed them with bombs.

The only difference is scale and I challenge anyone to make a moral distinction there.

Clearly it is not right that Islamists should bomb our cities. How, then, can it be right for us to bomb theirs?
