The bravery of causing 10,000 deaths

Commentary by Ruben Navarrette Jr. at CNN.com

Calderon squeaked out a narrow victory against a third-party candidate in 2006.
The Harvard-educated lawyer and economist immediately and bravely took the fight to drug lords across the country, unleashing the military in a conflict that has so far killed more than 10,000 Mexicans with no end in sight.
And there are now serious issues — as spelled out this week in The Washington Post — involving allegations of torture, forced disappearances and other abuse by the Mexican military as it seeks to retaliate for the killing of soldiers and other terrorist acts committed by the drug cartels. […]
Still, Calderon’s war remains a noble battle for the soul of Mexico. […]
…it’s great news for the Mexican people, even if they don’t know it. [emphasis added]

Killing and torturing you for your own good.

[thanks, Daniel]
