Yeah - I went a bit over the top. I just think it's very important to go beyond a simple cause and effect approach to these things. And This Prince dude just represents absolute scum in my eyes. There is also a Russian guy that ended up being a huge arms dealer, and commandeering a big part of the planes from the Soviet regime after the cold war ended. He too ended up being used by western countries to do some really shitty stuff. It's like this great ideological battle, where both sides proclaimed the other as being utterly evil, just devolved into a situation where evil is something that is accepted and required, and not at all combatted or even kept in check very well. Our interests are supposed to be served in the big picture, but to me it points to the need to re-define our interests entirely, because otherwise that evil is going to bite us bigtime.
