34. I'm not convinced their intentions are honorable. It's not that hard.

 

While human beings are somewhat resistant to change, we react to changing stimuli all the time.

We understand that if we cross the road while a car is coming we are going to get hit and hurt and perhaps killed. We watch the road and cross when there are no cars.

A war based on a lie is a crime. A war based on actual facts and murders of your own citizens and the threat that the group that murdered those citizens and behaves like that all the time to a wide swath of different people might take over a large amount of territory is different from a war based on a lie.

It's not that hard. You have to want to not get that.
