We'd better fight to win

Bad enough that these brave men lost their lives, and that their families grieve. Worse still is that the barbarians responsible savaged the bodies and then booby-trapped them in hope of killing those who would retrieve them.

I'd better avoid people for the next couple of days, because I will no doubt hear or see some educated nitwit say that the cruelty of the enemy only proves that we're the wicked ones for fighting back against them. And then I may well wind up leading the evening news.

(You can read more at It Comes in Pints and the Coalition, and a Tangled Web, and of course the heavy hitters are on the job.)
