63. Not a Very Good Riff, Though

The point depends on refusing to do something the enemy has done with great effect, on the grounds this would 'make us just like them'. In point of fact, when poison gasses were introduced to warfare, the side they were used first upon set out immediately to retaliate in kind, and evidently did so without the slightest concern with whether this 'made us look just like them'. Subsequently, such munitions have only been used against enemies who lacked any capacity to retaliate in kind. All parties who possessed the ability to retaliate in kind made clear the consequences of first use by an opponent, and none dared make the first move. The course many seem to favor in matters like this amounts to voluntarily placing oneself in the class of combatants who lack any capacity to retaliate in kind. That is to invite attack, and assist the success of attacks upon you. Unilateral disarmament in the midst of a fight is a mug's game.

To make it perfectly clear. I am convinced this accusation is high-test barnyard product, but if I did have some doubts it might be so, or even if I strongly suspected it was, I would advise the same course --- destroy the accuser, by all means available, and never allow the least hint there could be truth in the scurrilous lies by which a flaky liar bought and sold by the enemy, with the aid of a biased press, is attempting harm the best damn candidate the country ever saw for high office. And I do not even like Mr. Biden very much. The fact is the christo-fascist right, and the cheap thug they prop up under a hairspray crown, simply must be defeated, and that is so urgent a need that it is not only right as a matter of practicality, but right as a matter of ethics and morals, to do whatever is necessary, and do it with a smile and a conscience clean as a baby's.


"Defeat of a dangerous enemy is something to be for."
