B, your "we have an inherent right to their resources, so fugg'em" argument in favor of this abomination is the moral equivalent of an intellectual defense of pedophilia-- They're weak and have something we desire, so we can just move in and take that something by force...because we can. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to maintain any silly pretense in engaging you in some kind of "reasonable" debate about various actions and their pseudo-intellectual underpinnings, when they're so obviously morally degenerate.
What's most disturbing about your argument (unlike your contemporaries in the meme-spewing Koolaid krowd), is that you've clearly put some thought into it. Frankly, that's downright creepy. Honestly, I can't fathom how an otherwise rational sounding individual can hew so tightly to such morally challenged views, after all that's transpired since '03. Even if you still valued pedophilia, the application in this particular case would seem in the light of reason and thoughtful analysis to have proven to be increasingly sub-optimal.
For the foreseeable future, I'll leave the reasoned debates to discussions about tax policy or underarm deodorants, but your foreign policy logic is way beyond the capacity for reason.
