why ?
use force and the US will lose its position of leadership. Lead from the moral high ground and 100% within all international law and you win - the terrorists lose. What did we achieve in 1972 in Northern Ireland with 2 Para opening fire ? Turned neutrals into enemies. Despite being one of the best units in the World 2 Para will be remembered for that as much as Goose Green or Arnhem.
