I applaud Jimboloco's mercy..... it speaks of yet more irony, confounding in its nature. Mustering compassion and as much understanding as possible even toward those whom you are disposed (or instructed) to hate or fear or denigrate would seem to hold the key to humanity's future, or at least a large part of it. I think this is why policies of agressive or preemptive war will never bring anything close to lasting peace, and also perhaps why ill-informed, hateful or violent peace protesters usually do more harm than good.
