Re: So much hostility
A lot of idiots seem to think that if anyone dies in a war and they're not a combatant, that's murder. Well, OK, the Society of Friends (Quakers) think so, and they at least have a coherent, consistent, principled religious and philosophical position worked out, which they have stuck to consistently; and also some idiots.
(Other legitimate pacifist relgious and philosophical groups are available. Stop the War are not one of them.)
