The recourse to the word cowardly is another symptom of liberalism. Liberal politicians dont want to call the perpetrators of these crimes enemies or evil, since liberalism prohibits the recognition of the existence of enemies and evil. So they call them cowardly, which makes the speaker sound tough and determined, when in fact he is only being absurd.
Courage refers strictly to the attitude with which one faces a challenge. It makes no moral judgments about the challenge itself.
Evil men can be courageous, and good men can be cowards.

I agree Auster makes an excellent point.
