Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's my empire, and I have an interest in making it work as well as it can.

Fair enough. At least you admit the truth...
What bothers me that people like you cannot understand interest that other may have when using force (for example when Serbs used force INSIDE their own country for their interest they were demonized ...or when Russians intervened in Georgia)...
Seems like use of force is only OK in your minds when it's in the interest of YOUR Empire?

Blanket condemnation of everything based on principle - no.


Seems like principle is not favourable in your cards? Acting on case to case bases for me smells like lawlessness and tyranny. Your Empire does not need any approval to act at will but you know "chickens are coming home to roost..."or whatever that saying is...
In my opinion this is going to cost you your Empire in a long run...but in the meantime ENJOY!
