An Ounce of Prevention?

In a new blog jointly written by an economist and a circuit court judge, the first "real" post addresses the legal precedent for preventive war. It's a very logical argument based on the legal approaches of dealing with potentially dangerous individuals, and then extends the argument to terrorism in general and "rogue states" in particular.

What struck me about it, though, was that I was reminded or the movie _Minority Report_. Judgments are passed based on what probably would have occurred.
