"becoming Hitler to defeat Hitler"

The sensible and prolific Mark Shea's been debating with what apparently are a few hawks who, in their zeal to wage a struggle for survival against Islamic militants, would be more than willing to just nuke the whole bunch, and be done with it.

Mark Shea "take[s] the Church seriously when it says there is no nuanced position in favor of directly intending the destruction of innocent human life." The Church, meanwhile, has a long tradition of applying this moral criteria to the conduct of those engaged in warfare. The only answer to Mark's question: "Do think it worth eternal damnation to win a war?" is no -- and I find it incredible how any Catholic could truly believe otherwise.
