    There is no hypocrisy, just trying to make the best choice out of a series of bad options.

    None of this addresses why WMDs were ignored - the US certainly knew about them - with Saddam. Or why the US ignored his atrocities against the Kurds, Marsh Arabs, and Shi'a, either, in the 80s.

    Realpolitik is fine - I'm not that much of an idealist about Global Politics - It's lying bullshit to the public about human rights being the driving force that I can't stand.

    I guess we can forget that Russia was allied with the Nazis as Russia invaded Poland, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania? Russia only turned against the Nazis after Germany double-crossed them and invaded with Operation Barbarossa. Otherwise, Stalin would have been more than happy to carve up Europe with Hitler.

    And of course, that the Germans are the ones who put Lenin on a train to Russia and gave him funds in WW1, too, in order to get Russia out of the war. Stalin the Georgian (born Ioseb Besarionis Dze Jugashvili) was their offspring.

    We can also forget that the US, Britain, Japan, and others intervened on the side of the Whites, and so from the beginning established their anti-Red credentials. Then refused most trades with the Soviets - no exports of metal, timber, and especially gold were allowed from the Soviet Union to most Western Countries..

    Blowback is a bitch. The founders were right - armed neutrality is best. At least then you don't end up fighting the force you helped create later.

    Well, when your underemployed and lucky to have even that job below your skill level, marrying, having kids, and buying an overpriced ticky-tack shack would be being a slave to Tradition.

    The Russians didn't go eye-for-an-eye.
