Sick Rationalisation

Imagine a motorcycle gang beat you up every day of your life and stole whatever money you had. Then one day, after about a decade, they got bored and stopped. Would you?

  1. Run over to the motorcycle clubhouse and attack somebody at random to revive the fight?
  2. Thank your lucky stars and hope they forget about you permanently.

Oddly, most Americans presume (1). They justify attacking and continuing attacking both Afghanistan and Iraq on the grounds as soon as they stop attacking, the victims will attack the American homeland. This is such a sick rationalisation for bullying.
