The fact that some bad people halfway around the world are doing some reprehensible things does not automatically mean that "we" have to do something about it. In my latest Québecois Libre article, "Just Cause, or Just 'Cause?" I argue that the high costs of war are almost never worth it, and that if we do feel that we absolutely must do something, we could at least try to come up with more innovative ways of responding than dropping bombs on people.
