How to know if the aggressor is good or evil ?

Pharoh wanted to take the animals, make us slaves, take the loot and kill us.  Now that seems illogical since the slaughter would logically be the first step followed by the other three in reverse order.  The Torah explains that in pursuing us he would first catch up with the cattle, then the children women and old folks, then the gold and silver and finally, the men.  This is the way you can recognize Nazis.  They begin by weakening you through bureaucratic hassles ID you. then they seperate families, work you to death, then they eliminate you (genocide). The good guys usually try to knock out the faulty leadership and reeducate the population or bring them back to pre-madness condition. This is the exact opposite operation. 

In the case of Pharoh... the sole survivor from the sea of reeds, he became the leader of Ninve and led his citizens to repentence or at least fearing Gd. (He was knocked off, but got a second chance).

Now you can more easily ID the bad guys.
