The Bush doctrine

Christ called on us to turn the other cheek if someone smites us. The Bush doctrine is not only to smite the other guy if he smites us, but to smite him even before he attacks. It's actually to smite him even if we're not sure he has a club to attack us with. Really, it's more like 'to smite someone if we suspect that he has a club with which he intends to smite us, and after we've killed him and searched his dead body, finding that he had no club, to pretend that we should have smitten him anyway'.
