Queasy feelings sometimes emerge when an article so resonates its "indisputable wisdom". Some would and do say they don't wish to know the stupidity and malevolence that have their way on the world stage and prefer the aphorism that our leaders know but cannot say why they do as they do. Covering up stupidity, even at the cost of continuing war crimes, likely will be perceived as "what's best".

Does anyone remember, around year 2002, when it was considered "unpatriotic" to speak out against the war[s]?

That was one of several tactics that the Bush Govt. used to pretend there was genuine support for the wars.

That was where my "queasy feelings" were most high.
