I guess you missed the point, Jack.
I do not condone violence as an action, neither by the US or any other
geopolitical actor. Believe me, I am well aware of the trail of blood and
lost innocent lives that comprise the foundation of the US. Does that
justify violence as a response? For myself, I must say that it does not.
Very little has ever been solved by violent actions, and I believe that this
will just be another example.
My comments were more aimed at the appropriateness of your timing. People in
the affected cities are still dying and you are already throwing around blame
like it was candy...a little compassion wouldn't kill you. In other times
and other circumstances, you and I could sit and detail long lists of
atrocities committed by this country (I've done it before on paper, just ask
Massey), but the timing of your remarks makes them seem very callous and
I thought that I made my position apparent in my original post, but maybe I
need to reiterate it: two wrongs don't make a right. The hunt and kill
mentality is not one that I support, nor do I support racism in any shape or
form. Violence by any people against noncombatants should be abhorred. I
have personally, through coaching and advocacy, supported an end to this type
of violence on a host of issues throughout my association with this community
and will continue to do so. There is no justification for killing innocent
civilians by any actor or agency.
