Så mycket igenkänning. Det är skrämmande hur vänstern i Sverige idag inte skiljer sig det minsta från högern i frågor kring R2P (responsibility to protect.) aka wars.
Om Vietnamkriget hade varit idag hade västvärldens vänster LÄTT stått bakom USAs krigsföring. Eller ja, the-anti-anti-war-left, AAWL.

Här är ett utdrag av artikeln. Men jag hoppas att ni läser hela!

”A favorite theme of the anti-anti-war left is to accuse those who reject military intervention of “supporting the dictator”, meaning the leader of the currently targeted country.  The problem is that every war is justified by a massive propaganda effort which is based on demonizing the enemy, especially the enemy leader.  Effectively opposing that propaganda requires contextualizing the crimes attributed to the enemy and comparing them to those of the side we are supposed to support. That task is necessary but risky; the slightest mistake will be endlessly used against us, whereas all the lies of the pro-war propaganda are soon forgotten.”
