Just Peacemaking

It sounds like a more realistic ethic to me than pacifism, and it also might be politically viable. Of course political viability is not determinative by itself, but it is valuable in making the right toe the line with more integrity. If Democrats look too weak, it gives Republicans the whole field, and, I think, we can all observe that that prospect does not always work out well.
