“We have 50% of the world’s wealth, but only 6.3% of its population. In this situation, our real job in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which permit us to maintain this position of disparity. To do so, we have to dispense with all sentimentality…we should cease thinking about human rights, the raising of living standards and democratisation.”

George Kennan, US Cold War Planner, 1948

“I use very big money. I use guns, too. The bums who insist on double-crossing me know what they are up against. City Hall understands what I’m saying. At least I hope they do.”
Al Capone, American Mafia Gangster

What is the difference between a bomb attack killing six innocent people and an air strike killing 11 innocent soldiers? Both in my opinion are wrong. What’s the difference between killing innocent civilians in a city or targeting an embassy because of insults or killing innocent soldiers who are only there to protect?

Wrong is wrong, blood is blood and dead bodies are dead bodies no matter what the motive of the attack was.

As Mahatma Gandhi said “What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?”
