So you're comparing tarring and feathering to suicide bombings of mosques and markets?
Are you feeling alright? Make sure you're not running a fever.
The tar is rather hot, or the feathers don't stick. Fairly terrifying I would have thought.
Terrorists use the populace as human shields, deliberately hide their weapons and identities, deliberately target civilians, and are just generally subhuman scum.
Wow, you could be describing world war II, Vietnam, or any number of other 'legitimate' conflicts. It really isn't that cut and dried.
