Moral equivalence is the weapon of the reality challenged. If you cannot see the difference between the US using its power to stop a supremacist regime with the record of millions of deaths to its "credit" , and the Islamo-Fascist, or just plain Fascist genocide perpetrators against small defenseless peoples such as the Armenians Roma and Jews, then all morals have gone awry, the murderer and his victim are the same, the mass genocider and the dead millions are morally equivalent.

But in this case your morality is on the winning side. The leader of the United States has vowed not to use military might to save a seven million community from being annihilated by an 80 million strong radical mullocracy supported by such "democracies" as China, Russia, Turkey and the OIC. This tiny 7 million community will simply wait to be annihilated so in the end the few survivors can rightfully moan all men are created equal, the murderer and his victim are brothers under the skin. but then again, maybe not. Does Denmark remember the Nazi occupation that fondly? Modern israel is no Denmark, and will show that size is secondary to fortitude.
