This too, is from Willma Nusz:
While the war is being waged, many of us will encounter Peace Activists who will try to convince us that we must refrain from retaliating against the ones who terrorized us all on September 11, 2001. These "peaceniks" may be alone or in a gathering. Most of us do not know how to react to them. When you come upon one of these people, or one of their allies, here are the proper rules of etiquette:
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.
- 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 humanitarian.
- In the middle of their remarks, without any warning, punch them in the nose.
- When the person gets up off the ground, they will be very angry and they may try to hit you, so be careful.
- 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 committed to a nonviolent 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.
- Most of them will think for a moment and then agree that you are correct.
- As soon as they do that, hit them again. Only this time hit them much harder; square in the nose.
- Repeat steps 2 through 5 until the desired results are obtained and the idiot realizes how stupid an argument he/she is making.
We owe our military a huge debt for what they are doing for our children and us. 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 being "hit in the nose."
