Chances are pretty good we’re going to be lobbing some freedom bombs at yet another Middle Eastern nation.
The rationale for this is that you can apparently kill, maim, incinerate, perforate, stab, shoot, blow up, or just plain ol’ fashioned strangle a hundred thousand or so people and that’s fine. That’s just plain old civilized war. Blow up a few thousand civilians in the process, that’s “collateral damage”.
But if you try to poison your enemies, you’re a monster and the only response available to us will be to kill, maim, incinerate, perforate, stab, shoot, or blow up other people in your nation (likely including some ‘collateral damage’) because… Freedom? I don’t know anymore.
Question to consider: Will there any nations left in the Middle East that won’t have had at least one American bomb explode in them by the end of the decade?
You may now resume debating about how Miley Cyrus dancing in her underwear is merely the end of Western Civilization or a precursor to God’s Apocalyptic judgments.
