Convince You To Take Up Arms

If you were a person who wanted nothing to do with war, what could convince you to take up arms? Somebody could kill your wife and children hideously and painfully using banned weapons; they could imprison and torture you; they could occupy your country treating you as vermin and stripping it of its resources; they could spit on your religion. That just might do it. No wonder the Americans are so successful at encouraging terrorist attacks, which should more properly be called vendetta attacks. You’d think Americans were deliberately inviting attacks to provide obscene profits for the defence industry.
