I always find that to be difficult to ascertain. If someone hits you first are they the aggressor? A witness that only saw the punch would certainly say so, but perhaps it was the challenge you issued before the punch that was the first instance of aggression and the punch then only an escalation. Like any truth it's often a matter of perspective. I'm sure their are guidelines in law but again it all depends on interpretation.
Me too. Funny thing is that in history, the one with the nose bleed usually if not always comes out the winner and the aggressor with the bruised knuckes is the loser. War is a funny thing (pardon the expression) in that the attacked, at least for the last 300 years, triumphs over the attacker eventually. This should provide a historical lesson to all aggressors but.....I'm not holding my breath.
The birds and fish didnt steal it.. it was poured on them! They will be glad to give it back! Oil is a stupid arguement for war and agression.. just like religion.. but greed and religion are the two major cuases of war through out time. No way to stop war as long as those two remain.. and they will!
