Ethics in War

I recently got an email with an important article attached. The article, “When Teaching the Ethics of War is Not Academic”, is by a professor at the US Naval Academy. His thoughts on morality, the warrior code, and fighting a morally reprehensible enemy are all important ideas not only for those in the military, but for all Americans. Whereas some would prefer an America bitterly divided against itself – and thereby render the country less powerful, less influential – I think most Americans would prefer a strong, confident country that is defended by a militarily and morally strong warrior class.

As always, your feedback is welcome.
