it is generally best to adapt or throw out the theory.[not the other way round]. "The general goal of the Progressive Humanity is to suppress the banditry, not to change their ideology." 17 Generally it seems reality refuses to conform to your theory. The US paid a stipend to the 'sons of Iraq' and many talk of encouraging moderate elements of the Taliban. During the Tet offensive in 1968, the Viet Cong went through the city of Hue with hit lists, executing 3,000 civilians. Within months, America was negotiating "peace with honor" with the V.C. [a question:Does the US qualify under your proposed aegis of 'Progressive Humanity']. America's long tradition of supporting foreign terror groups is well attested: For instance, the Contras were ably assisted by both the US and Israel. Then of course America had little difficulty dealing with former terrorists Shamir and Begin. John Brown murdered men in Kansasin reprisal for the killing of Northerners and killed civilians in his raid on Harper's Ferry to ignite a slave revolt. Brown was hanged as a terrorist. Yet the first lines of the fighting song of the Union army were: "John Brown's body lies a mouldering in the grave, but his soul goes marching on. Glory, glory hallelujah." When one looks toward other examples emanating from that of 'Progressive Humanity' one is reminded of the UK's courting of the IRA, or Jomo Kenyatta, the "Grand Old Man" of Africa in the 1960s who was the leader of the Mau Mau in the 1950s. It seems you disposed with reality when you would have been better served by throwing out your theory!
