If you were referring to me I wasn't implying he
(Milosovich)shouldn't be dealt with. It would make it easier if
you'd speak of what you are replying to. Since I did use the word
slaughtered in a sentence, I assume you are speaking of my email. I
am not completely a pacifist- although I did grow up in a quaker
environment and did attend quaker schools. This is a touchy subject
and I'm not in the mood to argue pros and cons of War. However
Bombing is ridiculous in my opinion, as an English officer said
recently-"YOu've never seen a soldier surrender to an airplane.
Saying we will bomb but will not send in ground troops is a bit like
running with your big toes cut off.
