9. Racism, religious intolerance.

All the usual things that often follow warfare, all the usual things that we overlook.

The Malian government troops and the French are the good guys.

If they're good guys, then they're good.

The good do not engage in ethnic cleansing, murders, rapes.

Therefore, the only logical conclusion is that the Malian troops aren't and cannot be engaged in ethnic cleansing, murders, rapes.

Problem solved. Assuming that we like our absurdly false premise.

Now, the trick is to remember this when judging those closer to home.
