"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

An article about the mentality that led to Srebrenica. And what it means in the overall picture.

But, by and large, postwar Europe has disarmed. When we are faced with serious violence, we look to the UN. And when the UN cannot stop it, the Americans must be prevailed upon. And then, often as not, we moralise, call them cowboys and earn their contempt. The Dutch took the rap for it but the massacre at Srebrenica is really the responsibility of all Europeans, including, in this instance, the British. For when you are faced by killers, do-gooding no longer does good.
