So when the bell tolls the call to war it comes down to the proverbial 'kill em all and let God sort em out'. That sounds a lot like 'legal = right = moral = just' in my book.
Did you notice where not long before his death former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara came clean and admitted that the Golf of Tonkin incident didn't happen. Perhaps he was trying to go out with a clean conscience?
