A recent editorial cartoon comparing the US to the former Yugoslavia isn’t a warning to avoid the path to balkanization and sectarian warfare, so much as a hint in which direction the already ongoing civil war might be escalating.
None of the usual suspects are denouncing Lithuania as immoral or racist, after it put up razor wire on the border with Belarus and passed tough anti-migrant measures. Because it’s not about what is done, but who does it to whom.
