"The decision to attack the entire nation [of Yugoslavia] has been
counterproductive, and our destruction of civilian life has now become
senseless and excessively brutal. ... The United States' insistence
on the use of cluster bombs, designed to kill or maim humans,
is condemned almost universally and brings discredit on our nation
(as does our refusal to support a ban on land mines). Even for the
world's only superpower, the ends don't always justify the means."
Jimmy Carter
[James Earl Carter] (1924- ) 39th US President

The less we hear from him the better. He was off the mark as President and even more so now.

    He went from being a strong democratic president to being a bumbling syncophant for the DNC.

    I don't really know about the invasion of Yugoslavia... haven't studied it yet in history... but what he's saying is essentially correct. The ends DON'T always justify the means.
