No,it shows a lack thereof

since the patriot act,the USSA created more than 330 million of them
No need to go into the statistics abroad,(those being created out of the figment of a twisted mind)then reality set in
The good ole USSA created nearly all of them.

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

Harboring terrorists is not a

Harboring terrorists is not a principle, but a factor which politicians weigh when deciding whether to invade or not. I guess the major principle being this thinking is lawlessness. That is, he doesn't want to be restricted by principles. He would rather decide based on the real world of politics where we weigh the positives and negatives on a scale and depending how far the scale leans on the negative side, after it reaches a certain breaking point, then we go to war. Harboring terrorist has some heft that tilts the scale but because Pakistan is more friendly with us than the Taliban, that is, they do things and say things that we like, the scales are lifted back up toward the positive side and we do not go to war. I would argue that going to war based on political interests as opposed to principles is an unjust method, and therefore, leads to unjust wars. Perhaps why politicians dislike the Constitution because they know that laws restrict them from exercising political power.

He shouldn't have said he had a principle

He shouldn't have said he had a principle or that harbouring terrorists was his principle for going to war. BTW degree of lawlessness is not a principle.
