Ah, but thats predicated on the assumption that good really is
unwilling to cross lines, and that what we see on the news is
completely unfiltered. I don't find this very likely - you don't
have to look very far back in our history to see examples of such
activites (giving arms to terrorists, dropping nuclear weapons,
detaining prisoners of war in contravention to international
agreements through the application of sophistry (i.e. not declaring
war), the list goes on...).

Remember, the victors write the history books.
