Does anyone remember their history? About a certain mustachioed little German Corporal who took over parts of Europe while Chamberlain and all the rest of Western Europe tried diplomacy and placating him?
And how the US, through its oil embargoes and sanctions against Japan, essentially squeezed them into a corner they felt was inescapable, and then lashed out to take the resources they felt were necessary for their survival?
Why is it the “west” is unconcerned about squashing the lives of the “many” in a country to try and force the few of that country to do its bidding or toe some arbitrary line?
Would it not be more simple to simply ” squash” the entity that is causing the problem? oh….but that would be uncivilized!
