Plenty of Strange Bedfellows, Plenty of Sources for Them

The article on the peril in which the Church finds itself in modern day Turkey referenced below has made me wonder, why is the axiom that politics makes for strange bedfellows?
War, and the ancient truism that the enemy of my enemy is my friend makes for far weirder and less appropriate sex partners.
Surely one argument against going to war is that however necessary, however "just", it almost inevitably makes prostitutes of the nations that engage in it, in one way or another.
