Laying it out Squarely

The NY Times Editorial intones:
The rebels — a ragtag band that overcame incredible odds [yeah, who'd've ever thought you could win with with NATO bombing your enemy? - ziel], battlefield defeats and bitter internal divisions — have showed extraordinary commitment and resilience...They have promised to build a democratic Libya. They must keep that promise.
Yes, they must, the just must.

Yeah, don't you love it when the NYT gives flat out orders to supposedly "independent" countries?

I guess what's missing is the "or else" part - as in "or else we will have to scrounge up some screwy rationale in a future editorial how it's all the republicans fault you're not democratic".

Very good - a fallacy run rampant. Is it the Shylock fantasy or the Portia fantasy?
