- by someone else's sword. better to defend yourself by killing someone instead of being killed, even if that someone claims he's only 'defending himself' when trying to kill you. you can't wait till someone else's perception & understanding is straightened out if your own life is at stake. so much more a reason to kill him before it's too late. the interesting thing is to see the debate swinging from the thing about killing civilians /not to killing people who are no 'civilians' in this sense at all. some people, judging from the way they speak, seem to want to abolish killing in general & at any price, but then expose themselves when applying this selectively only & then even applying the very opposite idea when it suits their cause. the truth is both sides kill & eventually it's not as much a question of who's defending himself /not, but rather what reasons there are /might be for the killing, & in the final stage of it simply of who's a better killer.
