Tom Friedman, always so "serious" about foreign policy, writes a column implying that it's okay to inflict massive civilian casualties because Israel's enemies are "implacably hostile." Apparently, the "Arabs only understand force" line of argument is still all the rage in sensible centrist circles.

Luckily, the New York Times made sure to balance Friedman's column with an editorial by former Israeli soldier Jeffrey Goldberg arguing, instead, that Israel's enemies are implacably hostile and only understand force. Fair and balanced, bitchez!
