A friend of mine sent this to me before the war started. I thought I would share it with you. While I don't recommend actually doing this and it does not necessarily represent my point of view on this matter, it does make one think. (Maybe) Enjoy.
all of this talk of impending war, many of us will encounter "Peace
Activists" who will try and convince us that we must refrain from
retaliating against the ones who terrorized us all on September 11,
These activists may be
alone or in a gathering.....most of us don't know
how to react to them. When you come upon one of these people, or one of
their rallies, here are the proper rules of etiquette:
1. Listen politely
while this person explains their views. Strike up a
conversation if necessary and look very interested in their ideas. They
will tell you how revenge is immoral, and that by attacking the people
who did this to us, we will only bring on more violence. They will
probably use many arguments, ranging from political to religious to
2. In the middle of
their remarks, without any warning, punch them in
3. When the person gets
up off of the ground, they will be very angry
and they may try to hit you, so be careful.
4. Very quickly and
calmly remind the person that violence only brings
about more violence and remind them of their stand on this matter. Tell
them if they are really committed to a non-violent approach to
undeserved attacks, they will turn the other cheek and negotiate a
solution. Tell them they must lead by example if they really believe
what they are saying.
5. Most of them will
think for a moment and then agree that you are
6. As soon as they do
that, hit them again. Only this time hit them much
harder. Square in the nose.
7. Repeat steps 2-5
until the desired results are obtained and the
person realizes how stupid of an argument he/she is making. There is no
difference in an individual attacking an unsuspecting victim or a group
of terrorists attacking a nation of people. It is unacceptable and must
be dealt with. Perhaps at a high cost. We owe our military a huge debt
for what they are about to do for us and our children. We must support
them and our leaders at times like these. We have no choice. We either
strike back, VERY HARD, or we will keep getting hit in the nose.
