“If he comes to kill you, kill him first”

A great article in the Washington Post about the agonizing that Israel does over the use of target killings. I’m fairly certain Hezbollah, Hamas and Al Qaeda have no such moral dilemma.

The old way of warfare was killing masses of civilians to get at the leaders. The new way of warfare is to target the leaders to save the masses.
The new way is much more humane.

The new way is much less effective and leads to countless more deaths due to neverending conflicts.

When you compare yourself to the lowest form of humanity you will always “look” better.

I don’t think it is less effective to take out the leaders with limited civilians then to take out the whole city block killing countless civilians to get one person. If the people saying to go blow yourselves up are not around to say it anymore then less people will go blow themselves up to kill purely themselves and innocents.
