War is hell
We haven’t had a “good” war, at least with real justification, since WW II. (Korea was a “police action” and there WAS and actual invasion by the north, and there is still no actual “peace treaty”, only a cease fire.)
“Humanitarian” actions, that kill additional people, aren’t as humanitarian, even if killing FEWER people, than diplomatic solutions. Hmm, Iran/Contra was also about a civill war, and Reagan’s side LOST that one, hmmm, Viet Nam?
