So my point? As we stand with the US over Syria I want to stress they have a different approach to violence to us, from a different cultural standpoint. I have much time for the US military, I worked with them many times in my eight years in the Army, they are brave, focused, and well equipped. I've stood shoulder to shoulder with them in the jungles of Northern Cambodia, in Bosnia, where without them we would never have stopped the genocide, nor the war. But in the war on terror since 9/11 their attitude to, and use of violence has been counterproductive. The anachronistic 'Kill them all and let God sort it out' from the Crusades is a joke in the US military, but where we are now, 14 years into what future historians will call the Third World War I think it's time to reflect on who we are killing, and the phrase those who live by the sword, die by the sword.
