Yo Mo, you and your cunny over at the Independent ..... either get a better ideology, better weapons, or better propaganda. Perhaps even a better grasp of the world. A grasp of right and wrong. In the mean time beeoootch, war is one. FOAD ..... as usual.

Via Wizbang/Jay Tea/Killing me softly: That reminded me of an exchange in one of my favorite novels -- David Gerrold's "A Matter For Men." One of the characters is helping the other put on a flamethrower.

"...Let me ask you this: what is it that makes a weapon inhumane?"

"Uh..." I thought about it.

"Let me make it easier for you. Tell me a humane weapon."

"Um-- I see your point."

"Right. There's no such thing. It's like Christmas -- it's not the gift, it's the thought that counts." He came around behind me and started fitting the pads under the straps. "A weapon, Jim -- never forget this; lift your arms -- is a tool for stopping the other fellow. That's the purpose -- stopping him. The so-called humane weapons merely stop a man without permanently injuring him. The best weapons -- you can put your arms down now -- are the ones that work by implication, by threat, and never have to be used at all. The enemy stops himself."

"It's when they don't stop" -- he turned me around to adjust the fittings in front -- "that the weapons become inhumane, because that's when you have to use them. And so far, the most effective ones are the ones that kill -- because they stop the guy permanently." He had to drop to his knees to cinch the waist strap. "Although... there's a lot to be said for maiming --"

"Huh?" I couldn't see his eyes, so I didn't know if he was joking or not.

"-- but that's asking too much of both the weapon and its user.
