Promoting or supporting sanctions, wars, or “humanitarian interventions” is easy, any fool can do it.

When one makes an effort to look beneath the surface, one begins to notice great complexities, half-truths, lies, and even sometimes discover that the good are not so good, and the bad are not so bad.
