As ever, Dumb Jon hits the nail on the head about our enlightened world.
Can this be the same Liberalworld that argues so cogently for 'proportionality' elsewhere?
It surely can.
So, to double check: sending paint-ball gun armed soldiers to check the one solitary obdurate blockade-busting ship out of six 'peace vessels' and shooting back when fired upon and mobbed and finally getting around to using real bullets eventually is disproportionate.
Okay then, so having raped and murdered an 8-year-old child who didn't even have the good sense to carry a paintball gun, fifty years is a proportionate stretch of time to sit in a cell reading the paper and burping over three square meals a day, but any time beyond that which keeps an old chap from sitting in the park, feeding the ducks, watching the swings and slides would just be cruel.
Damn, but those libs are good at maths, aren’t they?
Picture from here.
