… have the courage to say:

‘I do not have enough knowledge, or access to sufficiently reliable information to contribute in a constructive and informed way to this debate. Given the problem may be the ease with which a pretext for war is rolled out on the endless surf of commentariat righteous belief, I would prefer not to participate at all thanks, for fear of contributing to the type of harm we saw with Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya and the rest.’

There is more to deciding if we should go to war, than convincing the commentariat it is the ‘right’ thing to do.
