Partisan Blamelessness

One of the strangest things about human psychology is that in any war both sides consider themselves perfectly blameless and the other side wickedness incarnate. It does not matter how badly they behave. Consider the Nazis feeling so smug when they were exterminating Jews. Consider the Americans so smug when they were routinely torturing detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq, laughing at the Geneva conventions, using banned weapons such as land mines, cluster bombs, napalm, DU (Depleted Uranium), white phosphorus and illegally attacking without provocation.
