The Moral Ambiguity of Urban War

Noah Schachtman's latest piece at Danger Room conveys some of the complex moral ambiguities that come with military operations in urban space. At NBOL workshops in 2007, I listened to young Israeli participants describe their experiences with similarly difficult and murky circumstances. Many of them were Master's students who spent their 2006 summer break at war in Lebanon, and came back with heavy questions most people should never have to consider.  The scenarios they described, drawn directly from their own experiences, challenged those of us who made up the project's "expert" panel. Go read Noah's piece, and give it some thought.
