Iraq started the war. The US simply terminated the ceasefire agreement.Not irrelevant, point is don’t apply double standard. Wars can start for a number of unjustified reasons. Once it begins, you and others draw an arbitrary line that a set of morality principles has to apply here uniquely when none has been applied in the past.
I want Russia to lose now that it started the war. Ultimately Russia should have understood the reality of its military and financial strength and just been a manipulator. Instead the fear driven political culture where reality was hidden got it into this mess.
Iraq (in 2003, not prior to that) was also a defender that had not initiated a ‘Pearl Sevastapol’ action and was attacked unprovoked under a false pretext.
It gave three reasons for doing so. One is enough to start a war.
It was the Falangists that committed the massacre. Sharon was forced to resign over the issue.Your moral double standard (based on your flag) is suspect as it was Israel supported militia that massacred thousands in 1982 in Sabra and Shatila camps so you will not understand it.
Many tweak the facts, like You do.In fact what you say (or anybody on this forum says) about moral standard or double standard is irrelevant. BUt what is irrelevant is when Europeans amplify this thought you project, the world knows better and doesn’t fall in line.
This is why non NATO/non-Europeans have not openly condemned. They have chosen neutrality as the path ahead. South Africa is having a BRIC summit (as stupid as it is to have it ) and give Putin diplomatic immunity just to make a point.
