    Soft. Proper is dictated by the winners. See Dresden, Nagasaki and Hiroshima. If the Axis had done what happened at any of those, it would be the source for eternal examples of all-time evil. But that was the winners, so it is ok.

    And I approve of that standard. To the victors go ALL of the spoils. It's like people griping that the Pistons don't get calls. Well, the Pistons suck. If you're a ref, are you going to give calls to the "can't make the playoffs Pistons" or the "playoffs every year Spurs"? Seems like an easy decision to me.

    People like to laugh at me being so binary about "just win baby" but it is true. Losers aren't remembered fondly. They don't have reunions or impressive jerseys hanging in the rafters.

    Whether they cheat or not, history will remember Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. They won't remember Joey Harrington and Rod Marinate.

    i don't think the term "righteous" has deteriorated to who is using the word.
    I've never thought of war success as righteous.
    I wouldn't use righteous in regards to execution of a felon.
    But language is liberal.

    I'm guessing indignation can be righteous.
