It would be foolish to hate them. Hate clouds the judgement. Measured deadly
force will be sufficient. No more and no less. We are capable of a great
deal of precision these days. Sloppyness shouldn't be tolerated.
Contrary to randy's statement, our society has become increasingly more
effective against terrorists and guerrillas. Sadly, it is because more and
more of our planet is now inhabited. Where one used to be able to hide a
100,000 man army, one can no longer hide a lit match, without some satellite
finding it or some wanker complaining about it to the local constabulary.
Both terrorists and guerillas depend on being able to hide. That is
increasingly more difficult, ask the Columbian drug cartels.
