Recently observed rule: any argument over foreign policy in terms of western/U.S. military intervention will eventually result in the following:
1) Claim that opposition to such is rooted in some form of bigotry, of tribal indifference. Basically, it is taken as a given that intervention is necessary For The Greater Good, and only callous dismissal of The Other could lead to saying no.
2) Unspoken assumption on the part of supporters of such that responsibility for the world as a whole justly rests on the shoulders of the west in general, & the U.S. in particular. Essentially, that minus the regular application of military dominance by the same few global actors, It Will All Go To Hell.
I smell White Man’s Burden here. Do you?
