But the article goes on to credit anti-imperialists for opposing "right 
to protect" type interventions: "A group of anti-imperialist 
intellectuals, in particular, have responded to Trump’s election by 
crafting an avowedly left-wing foreign policy that doubts the efficacy 
and morality of humanitarian intervention." The authors take their side 
but warn against ending up in Grayzone territory, where anybody opposed 
to the Chinese government is turned into an agent of imperialism.
