As you see you love being killed and your country being destroyed, what kind of help would you expect from the friendly countries and other friendly countries around the world? Would their words of support and encouragement be enough? Or would you expect something more? Would you be able to understand their reluctance to help you militarily for fear that their country might be attacked, too? Would you be able to understand their reluctance to stop buying the madman’s oil for fear that their gas prices might go up and hurt their leaders’ chances for reelection?
Try to imagine a madman with dreams of being an emperor invading your country and killing your family, friends, and neighbors. What would you do? Would you fight back or give up?
