It’s not often I comment on global politics. But these are what the Chinese might refer to as “interesting times”. When looking at the world situation, you have to remember that international politics is amoral. It is seldom, if ever, anything to do with right or wrong. It is simply about what will benefit the particular nations interests most. In my case, this refers to the UK and, more generally the West.
Of course, wrapping up actions in the cloak of moral or religious imperative is a great way to sell policies to the electorate, but that isn’t the root cause.
