Blinded by Revenge, Bereft of Reason

And then there is their response....
And then there is our response...
And then there is their response...

And then there is our response:
They kill us. We kill them. An eye for an eye. In fact, let's take out more of their eyes than they did of ours, more of their teeth than they did of ours. The outpouring of tears is finished. Now for the downpouring of bombs. Time for some machismo, baby! Time to show that we have "balls". To show our manhood. Our big bombs. Our "big dicks". They want to mess with us? We will show them that we are not "pussies". Just you wait and see. We're gonna "kick ass, baby!" We shall be merciless in our response. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show on CNN, Fox News, NBC, ABC, BBC, RT. You're gonna love our state of the art, high-tech killing machines that will be raining down our wrath upon them. We will be rolling out our top-of-the-line bombers and fighter bombers. You are gonna see some serious precision bombing shit. We will make sure you get to see the footage. Watch their dead bodies among the rubble. Watch their command and control centers go up in flames and smoke. Watch their training camps, their recruitment centers, and their arms and munitions warehouses get obliterated. See modern warfare at its best.

And then there is their response....
And then there is our response...
And then there is their response...
And then there is our response...
Both of us blinded by revenge,
Both of us bereft of reason.

And so the revenge response continues. The cycle of revenge violence continues.
