You know that time Republicans decided to illegally overthrow the Libyan regime and replace it with a bunch of Islamist militias?

Here is the only way the world actually works. There are civilized countries and savage countries. In a civilized country, the government and people may not like you, they may cheat you and take advantage of you in all sorts of ways, but they will not drag your corpse into the street for their amusement. In savage countries they will do that unless they have good reason to fear the consequences.
