Euthyphro and Compassion

My Facebook friend wrote:

The class was on the Euthyphro, and I was discussing whether being able to define an ethical concept made you more ethical. I then described compassion as an automatic process and easy to define concept. “But is it really?” the student asked, “I mean, do those people in Iraq really understand compassion the way we Americans do.”

I want to comment during the coming days on this interesting issue.
