Rationalizing

France is prepared to use nuclear weapons against any country that carries out a state-sponsored terrorist attack against it. Defending France's €3bn-a-year nuclear arms programme, Jacques Chirac yesterday said that the country's nuclear strike force was "not aimed at dissuading fanatical terrorists", but states who used "terrorist means" or "weapons of mass destruction" against France.
PS - to rationalize is to devise self-satisfying but incorrect reasons for one's behavior.
