"Someone's got to do something!" is EXACTLY how we got the neverending...

...war on drugs.

Those filthy NEGROS* are smoking MARIJUANA and RAPING your WHITE DAUGHTERS.


That EVIL DICTATOR Assad is using CHEMICAL weapons and KILLING INNOCENT CHILDREN.

Three quarters of a century apart, and exactly the same language is being used to set one faction of humanity against another in order that a privileged few might profit.

Oh and you can jam "Those dirty JEWS and Gypsies do UNSPEAKABLE THINGS", "Those stinking TUTSIS are going to ENSLAVE US.", into the gap for good measure.

* Why use the "lesser N word" instead of a bunch of asterisks? Because it was in this exact argument that both words were turned into synonyms for badness and tools for the demonising of dark skinned people. If I thought I could get away with it, I'd spell out the other as a reminder of:

EXACTLY HOW MUCH HATRED THIS SORT OF ARGUMENT GENERATES.

Exactly how much blind irrational hatred this sort of argument is INTENDED to generate.

1. It's all about stirring up people's emotions so they're not

thinking clearly. Look at all the dead children! We've got to do something! Nobody asks how many children the rebels have killed. There weren't any cameras around when they bombed neighborhoods. Both sides in this conflict have killed a lot of people. There isn't a guilty side and a righteous side. If we get involved in this, it will simply be because it suits the interests of certain people.
