    One little thing.

    Wanted to acknowledge the complexity of issues for your offer all the same.
    I didn`t offer to write a diary on the subject.
    It was suggested that maybe I could.

    And in response, basically discouraging that suggestion

    You may want to go take a peek in my archives to give you an idea.
    Then come back & tell me whether you`d really want me to write a diary on such a complicated issue as the genocide of hundreds & hundreds of different tribes numbering from mere dozens of members to some in the multiple hundreds.
    No harm, no foul.

    I`m already against the next war.

      I will admit I did not comprehend the point you were trying to make in linking to that diary of yours.
      On the other hand, I don't think I went so far as to urge you to write one; I was instead attempting to point out the problems inherent in addressing a very difficult and complex issue in a diary here.
      So, while I appreciate your demurral, it seems to me that the net result is that we're reaching the same conclusion.  Better not to write given what we each acknowledge.
      That's a constructive decision to reach. No harm, no foul indeed.

        Not you, Kombema.
        And thank you for telling. I'd be interested to
        hear more, maybe in a diary?
        And yes, we are on the same page.
        I`m just making sure we`re reading the right lines.
