Hundreds of innocent children have died, and it looks like many more will die. I can’t believe how sloppy this situation was handled.
I would have thought that 2 years ago when the terrorists took over the movie theatre, and the Russians deployed poisonous gas inside the building killing over 100 people, they would have learned their lesson.
There must be an easier way to get people out of a building. Isn’t there some sort of gas that can knock people out without killing them? And obviously storming the building and battling the terrorists face-to-face is going to cause many casualties as well. It is a very tough situation to be in, I really feel for the person who has to make that decision. But I guess if there are 1200 people taken hostage, you want to save as many people as you can, and when you’re dealing with dirty terrorists, there is a cost associated with saving lives.
I’m very appalled at the tactics used by these sick people. Strapping suicide bombs to their women, taking over a school consisting of mainly innocent children, and threatening to blow up the entire school. These are very weak and desperate people.
As I type this, I’m regretting writing this posting. The terrorists are seeking attention. They are seeking publicity. They want it to be known to the world their purpose for pulling such a sick stunt. This is exactly what we are giving them.
Wars breed poverty. Poverty breeds hatred. Hatred breeds more wars. Preemptive attacks on mainly innocent people breeds hatred. When people are suppressed from living normal lives, they only want revenge.
Let’s all lose the egos and step back and look at reality. War should be a last resort, and only a last resort. How can we avoid war? Share the land.
