there's a difference between
taking defensive action sooner rather than later
we kind of suspect something, so shoot first and ask questions later.
apparently, you've declared yourself some kind of an expert on knowing exactly what that difference is. Either that or you don't care that much. See, a lot of times its like that with the most rabid hawks. They don't have to be too careful; they are the preemptors and not the preemptees..... Yeah, those folks MAY have been a problem, but that doesn't matter any more.... they're dead now. Better safe than sorry....
