  •  No need to apologize to me. (12+ / 0-)

    I have the same visceral reaction when it comes to the Bin Ladens, Pinochets, McVeighs, and Rudolphs of the world.

    But if I were to act on all of my visceral impulses - and I'd imagine this to be true of anyone - I would be a very bad person. What I attempt to do in this instance is to expand my personal concept of right and wrong - since this is absolutely a life-and-death issue - to include my sociopolitical opinions.

    Again, though, that's just me. And I know that I'm likely in the minority these days.
