Sometimes, it does.
It is not that I recommend beating up your neighbor, or shooting at him. I am far from that position.
There is however, the unpleasant task of dealing with bullies, be it at the bus stop, in the neighborhood, or on a world wide arena.
There DOES comes a point, that we have no other other resource, when discussions have failed, to say, " I forbid you", and I have the aresenal to back me up.
Sometimes, it really is, when all else has failed, that t he spoils belong to the victor.
When the neighborhood bully can not be talked down, you really do need to call in your big bother to kick his ass. It is the only language that some will understand.
Yes, it is ugly.......but it is effective.
I have 6 big brothers. That fact alone, has spared me much. They were quick to defend me as a kid, as a married woman, I have NEVER called the troops in............still they are there.
As a nation..........do not dismiss your support system. It is a bad play!
There are no memorable battles that did not involve some degree of violence.
