    for the times it does nothing at all.

    Bosnia comes to mind. Then Rwanda.

    Ultimately, those with power make enemies no matter what they do or neglect to do. The default is to pick weak enemies... to piss off those with no immediate means to strike back.

    We see this in interstate politics. In organizational and community politics. In the little exchanges that promote individuals' agendas on websites such as this one.

    For example - Think of how many times a comment has name-dropped a front-pager or well-known diarist and 'wondered aloud' why so-and-so has NOT said or done something? It's the same as if they had weighed in.
