  •  I see that you are very frightened (2+ / 0-)

    You are afraid of the terrorists so you want to allow the Leader father figure to employ any means to kill that which so terrifies you. So you wash your hands of the knowledge of drones hovering over other people's countries and sending hellfire missiles on possibly bad intelligence to blow up "militants" (however that term is described today) and civilians alike.

    You don't have enough empathy with the people on the receiving end of those missiles to see that they, too, might want to lash out at the violent forces threatening them (and in a much more immediate way than you are ever likely to be threatened). And so you contribute to the circle of violence. In a way, you are a terrorist of yourself.
