flattop AMERICAN ATTACKS- - -PART FOUR (115* d) RE: AMERICAN ATTACKS- - -PART FOUR 11 Sep 01


Not quite Amos. I know that you are grappling with these issues and looking for reasonable answers. Surgical bombing sounds like we only have to suffer through our neat little vasectomies and then life will be fabulous. I'm trying to imagine how surgical bombing would work with real people in real time.

It reminds me of one of S.I.Hayakawa's stories that I may have told on mudcat before. Hayakawa was traveling in a taxi in Chicago after a race riot. The driver told him that black had thrown rocks and almost hit his mother but that they had fixed them, they'd gathered a bunch of his friends and beaten up a bunch of blacks. S.I.Hayakawa asked him if they gotten the guy who threw the rock at his mother.

Unless you can get the one who threw the rock at your mother, surgical bombing doesn't seem to be a reasonable answer to me. It more likely to be a show that victimizes other innocent people. You've mentioned that already in one of your posts.
