As I said, easily misunderstood.
People don't have the right to initiate force against others - I'm sorry if I gave this impression (and re-reading, I can see what you mean - I worded it badly). I wouldn't post something I can not back up, nor do I think it's justified as an opinion - again, I'm sorry if I gave that impression.
I don't see what you mean about the UN has no power apart from the governments behind it - I didn't (or did I give that impression) say that it is anything else. But they are hidding because they don't want to die - fair enough! Of course they shouldn't have put themselves in that position - that is not fair enough.
And yes, morality is in the realm of opinion - I'm surprised you suggest anything else. Virtually every meal I sit down to contains meat products that some people consider immoral - but in my opinion eating animals is OK.
And I "appease such barbarians"??? How many times did I state that I do not think this is right, in anticipation of people posting replies like you have. I accept that I didn't make it clear - SOME parts of this is too fuzzy for a straight yes/no or good/bad. But much of it is pure bad and wrong and I in no way think they had justification with what they did.
War doesn't decide who's right - just who's left.
