You can't be decent. These aren't decent people you're dealing with. People who use nuclear material as body armour can't be reasoned with. People who punish tax dodgers by sending them to prison to get raped can't be pleaded with. You can't expect mercy or show any mercy. Mercy, to them, is a sign of weakness. These people consider negotiations to be a sign of weakness. The only way to fight them is to degrade yourself to their level. To become like them. Americanism can only be fought with Americanism. There was once a word that represented what the United States stands for and it was widely used before the United States became apparent. I believe that word was barbarism or barbarity or something like that.
