While I'm no advocate of the "School of the Americas" (in spite of having taught classes to Delta, Seals, Rangers, and other non-existent people at Ft.Benning). It is clear that there are no easy solutions to the problems that we, as a society, face. Too often, we can only chose who will suffer.

In the classes that I taught, the attendees sensed that there are evil people in the world. People willing to inflict terrible suffering. (A concept no one on this list should have a problem with). The issue is -- how do we respond? And, in particular, how do we cultivate the judgment to decide between bad options?

There are lessons here to be learned. I suspect that most people don't want to hear them.
