    Do you believe that the only reason to ever use violence is to, in the long run, prevent further violence?
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Yes,your posts ARE right here for all to see in various forums. They display no sympathy for the victims of terrorism, only the perpetrators, use bloated, inaccurate language geared towards creating false impressions and are very histrionic in tone.

    It all adds up to one rather inescapable conclusion.

    Your example is irrelevant. The point in question was whether violence could bring about lasting peace, it self-evidently can. You remain wrong.

    With a variety of techniques by European Americans. Are there historic revisionists of this now also?

    I have a lot of sympathy and feel really, really bad about victims of terrorism. Feel better? If I haven't said that before it is because it is too obvious to state since no one on this forum has defended terrorism. Not only that, I actively protested against terrorism when it was being done to the Nicaraguans thirty years ago and people were defending it.

    Yet you refer to the killing of known terrorist ring leaders as "murder".

    If you actually did have any sympathy for the victims of terrorists, you would most definitely NOT bemoan their deaths while trying to create sympathy for them by making them the victim, instead, as is patently in evidence by this twisted choice of words.

    As I said, WWII was a good war that was won with mass killing and acheived a lasting peace. However, since much of the killing was unnecessary it wasn't completely just.

    Fire Bombing of Dresden
    "....Critics of the bombing argue that Dresden—sometimes referred to as "Florence on the Elbe" (Elbflorenz)—was a cultural landmark of little or no military significance, and that the attacks were indiscriminate area bombing and not proportionate to the commensurate military gains.

    'It seems to me that the moment has come when the question of bombing of German cities simply for the sake of increasing the terror, though under other pretexts, should be reviewed. Otherwise we shall come into control of an utterly ruined land… The destruction of Dresden remains a serious query against the conduct of Allied bombing. I am of the opinion that military objectives must henceforward be more strictly studied in our own interests than that of the enemy.'........"
