NBC News Brian Williams Wonders: “Are We Better Morally” Than Our Jihadist Enemies?…

The answer to that is clearly yes. Pouring some water up a terrorist's nose or giving him a slap is clearly morally superior to crucifying children, beheading aid workers and stoning adulterers. Asking whether we are morally superior is irrelevant in my opinion. When you are at war with someone who has sworn to kill or destroy you, it's not about being "morally superior." At the end of the day, we can win and be alive and continue our way of life or we can be dead and our children will be living under an Islamic Caliphate. The question is, "Are we willing to do what it takes to win?" After we have won the war, there will be time to criticize what we could have done better. If we lose, being "morally superior" will be small consultation to the dead or our daughters living their lives as sex slaves.
