What really depresses me is that in both cases, large numbers of ordinary people are too bamboozled and manipulated to think things through. They simply fail to comprehend that reducing countries to rubble and blowing all that is dear to other people clean into the next world absolutely will not make life safer for any of us. That is unless you go the whole hog, apply the ‘Salvador Option’ and exterminate entire communities.
No people = No terrorists/ insurgents. Easy peasy.
It's what Stalin would have done.
What a pathetic, woeful mess this all is...
