There is a distinction between being a pacifist and loving your neighbor. It is true that a pacifist may have the best of intentions, but so does the guy who protects the innocent from the homicidal.
If one of your neighbors is trying to kill you and some of your other neighbors, doesn’t the love we have for our other neighbors require us to stop the killer? Yet the Bible also requires us to love the homicidal? Isn’t that a puzzle?
Here is a blog post that suggests to deal with just that sort of problem.
General Qasem Soleimani was once called the “Wizard of Oz of Iranian terror” by the New York Post. He was responsible for the Benghazi embassy attack, and was in bed with Barack Obama. He was the most dreaded and most effective terrorist alive, the head of the Quds Force, an organization that acts as a combination CIA and Green Berets for Iran, and a man who orchestrated a campaign of chaos against the United States around the world. Then we drone-struck him. Was it a good thing? Actress and hopeful foreign policy expert Rose McGowan tweeted her deep analysis which started like this. “Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. #Soleimani
