It reminds me of Lucas(green party) on Falklands.
L-Argentina and UK should just grow up and come to an agreement stop acting like kids. Interviewer-So you want to ignore that only 3 people on the entire Island want to be under Argentine control. L-Of course we should listen to the people. I-So we can't overrule them and give a compromise with Argentina. L-I just find this whole thing petty on both sides and should stop acting like children and solve the issue.
It`s soo much easier and lazier to blame both sides, say everything is futile and tar them with the same brush. And then congratulate yourself on having a better world view.
It`s complete bullpoo, you just ignore the suffering off others and the responsibility of others for that suffering.

And this ignores the fact that some people want to be in charge and have control.
I have no doubt that most people in Ukraine don't want a civil war and to keep their country in one piece but that doesn`t stop separatists starting a war. You think the Kurds want a war with Isis or just to protect themselves? But Isis does want a war with the area as they want to wipe anyone who isn`t their type of Muslim out.
This mantra is a cop out, it`s true it can get people to war with a imaginary perceived threat. But that doesn`t mean their is never a actual threat.

â€œThe best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.â€ - Mein Kampf
