But why does it bother you? Why would it be wrong to write such an article?
You aren’t denying the truth of the article, so what is it that you have against it?
I fail to understand why you feel this article is somehow exploitative of the situation. Surely the reason we study history is to instruct us by showing us how choices taken in the past were successful or not — and enlighten us by showing how events from today’s headlines don’t spring from a vacuum but represent ongoing themes in society.
I for one had never heard of this historical event before, and I was extremely interested to read about it. If you aren’t, feel free to quietly go elsewhere.
