McConnell's Doctrine

The chairman once got into a debate in a college legal class about the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, about 50 years after the fact, in which he said the bombings were undeniably wrong, because a country bound by morality and honor does not willfully target civilians for any reason. Wrong no matter who practices this type of indiscriminate warfare, whether it be suicide bombers or any nation state's armed forces, or anybody else. Wrong no matter that the alibi may be "tit for tat," since two wrongs don't make a right. However, the U.S. Senate does not see it that way. They passed a resolution today condoning indiscriminate warfare, with Mitch McConnell, a leader in the Senate, saying in so many words that it should be the absolute policy of America. Innocents, however, must suffer the brunt of McConnell's Doctrine. The vote in the Senate for approval was a composite voice vote; apparently nobody in the Senate, and it only takes one, demanded a straight-up vote wherein every member would be on record.
