from the far side

Who entitled a nation to correct others? By what right? And why this special nation and not its neighbors? Who gave it the right to interfere in other people's life and boss everyone around?

Of course, there is no right. There is only might and weapons, and interests. I understand interests, I understand money, and the law of the strongest, even if I may be in the camp of the defeated. That's how things go in times of war.

But the raw power of the strongest masquerading morality and good feelings, that is disgusting. Getting bombed for one's own sake and the salvation of one's soul? Wolves are in nature's order, but what about wolves wearing the lamb's skin?
