war talk

Guardian today: "President Bush's deputy national security adviser, James Jeffrey, warned Russia of a "significant long-term impact" on US-Russian relations if Moscow continued its disproportionate actions."

Firstly, who on earth is this guy to lecture anyone on the ethics of invading foreign countries?
Secondly, shouldn't there be inverted commas round the word 'disproportionate', or is the Guardian jetissoning all notions of 'objectivity' in this context?
