something; family, country or whatever and taking part in a colonial
war to grab some assets. Most people will do the former if they feel
they are in a corner, perhaps because few are saintly enough to do
Being prepared to take part in a colonial war to seize something is a
different matter. I note the lies told by the UK and especially the US
government and also their failure to correct misinformation. Thus many
of those who invaded Iraq appeared to sincerely believe that they were
defending their country against aggression. Mass deception on this
scale is very disturbing.
