Sorry but I don't agree. Cruelty is cruelty. Whether one person threatens
the safety of a child, violates the body of a woman or takes another's life
or threatens the freedom of another it is all wrong. I realise that the
human race is by nature this way and has been for 1000's of years and will
remain so until the end of time. Was Hitler's racism towards the Jews
agreeable for that time? Were the crusaders right because of the time? It
has always and will always continue to be about gaining or keeping power of
one kind or another, much the same as any animal trying to stay at the top.
Well I guess we should be thankful that we don't eat our enemies when we
have conquered.
