    Therefore, when two opposing sides meet in battle,

    the one without an enemy will be victorious.

    I am a pacifist to a point far beyond most people I know but once I commit to a fight, I am unrestrained by mercy or rules until the fight is decided and I have won.

    I worked in some pretty rough bars as a bouncer and as a bartender back in the day.  I talked my way out of fights more often than not because I was the type to say excuse me if someone bumped into me.  I was never looking to fight.   That didn't stop me, however, from being in over a hundred or so.  I had baseball bats used against me, knives, guns pulled on me, multiple people ganged up on me and I always came out on top.  

    Once you are comitted, you do whatever you can to win.  I didn't impose rules on myself like "don't hit someone with glasses or no kicking in the nuts or no biting".   I guy with a baseball bat comes after you, he is looking to kill you.  You do not try to fight him with honor.

    I do not like war because I know what war is.  A lot of people don't like the idea of war but they have never had a gun put to their head or a knife pulled on them or a crowd of guys standing around you wanting to kick your ass and you're all alone.  You realize when that happens, there is nothing you wouldn't do at that moment to live.  War is hell.  I am not saying that we should never fight a war.  There are a million scenarios that I believe would justify a war but if you find yourself in a war that you could not avoid, you cannot be civil, you cannot be merciful and you sure as hell cannot rebuild your enemy at the same time you are blowing them up.
