...but I understand...

I'm not saying the wholesale killing of one's enemies is necessarily appropriate...

I'm not saying wiping out Bad People, en masse, before they annihilate you is nice...

I'm not saying Patton was right when he counseled that America should march to Moscow...

I'm not saying the Reign of Terror is a high watermark of Human discourse...

I'm not saying Robespierre was entirely correct...

...but I understand.

    1. "Experience is what you get, when you don't get what you want" as they say. Well, now "understanding" goes with a lot of that experience, doesn't it?

      Heh, there's going to be a lot of folks experiencing their neighbors' 'understanding' when shit breaks and 911 is rendered obsolete...
