    rephrase to reflect reality?

    I'd rather have random killings versus the absolute certanty of genocide....
    You actually mean, "I'd rather have the absolute certainty of random killings versus giving up my fantastic illusion that I could overthrow a tyrannical government which possesses tanks and missiles with my gun."

    An unsuccessful shoe bomb attack resulted in nine years of inconvenience for every flier in the country. It would be nice to think [this diabolical act] might lead to some similar inconveniences. --mrblifil

      If genocide is going to occur, then it should occur with tanks and missiles and destroy the entire country.  Maybe in the midst of all that carnage, people will come to their senses.  Maybe those in the military would never let it get to that point?  Every think about that?

      But when the disarmed are quietly marched onto trains and quietly shipped out to the death camps for extermination, people don't complain quite so loudly, do they?  When genocide is all nice and clean and quiet, what's not to like?
      This has happened over and over again througout human history.  It is happening today in certain countries, and it will happen again.

      If I die but my wife and child escape, that's better than the alternative isn't it?

      shows, ok, not literally everything that is wrong with this country.

      Instead of fighting against heimatsecurity theater, you use it to justify more heimatsecurity theater.
