COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MICHAEL WHITE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

“…but not intervening carries a price too”

Pure, thoughtless crap, Mr. White.

These weren’t “interventions,” they were aggressive wars by proxy and otherwise.

A million or so people destroyed.

Many portions of beautiful lands destroyed.

People’s jobs destroyed for a generation.

Refugees by the millions created.

Only people with no feeling for humanity or the servants of special interests can speak this way.

It’s pure Hillary-speak with no sense of moral or ethical values.

George Orwell would have been appalled by the word “intervention” as used here and by the neo-cons.

If it’s okay to “intervene” in this fashion, then pretty much all everyone from Tojo to the Argentine Junta did in the past is just fine, and we live in a world without values, except for the value of might makes right.
