One often thinks of this as the Economist’s view of the world, but rarely finds it stated outright:

But letting a committee run a war is a risk too. A safer, if less principled, path to re-election would be for him to topple the colonel quickly, with less scruple for the sensitivity of allies and the letter of the law. Assuming that is possible, of course.

I suppose it takes some courage to accept outright that the recommended course of action is “less principled.”
