Just a quick note and observation:

If the basis for wishing to end sanctions is
humanitarian and compassionate, then this should
really be universal.  "Putting people down" seems
pretty harsh.  Are the majority of people in the world
really unintelligent?  and even if this is true, does
this make them lesser people, as the implication
asserts?  As for people who join the military, it is
usually those with limited options, either due to
having grown up financially, educationally, and
socially disadvantaged, and/or belonging to an ethnic
group that is on the receiving end of racism.  I don't
think it is helpful to "judge" these people as somehow
on the bottom or near the bottom of a human strata.
