Cowardice in foreign policy.

On a podcast, I recently heard this statement:
"Sometimes you have to work with someone who is dirty in order to fight someone who is evil."
This is a fair enough moral explanation of a certain set of events, from Noriega to Bin Laden to Samoza to the contras to Castro to Saddam.

Here's my rebuttal philosophy:
"It is cowardice to empower one evil guy in his evilness because he's willing to fight in your stead another evil guy that you're too chicken to fight yourself."
