The problem, of course, that it ends up being like two little boys arguing in a school yard. Someone is going to lose face or there is going to be a fight. Yes, if alone, without the other kids watching, the situation could may have well been solved without violence. Think the same holds true for our leaders.
“What I am going to do is send the dogs of war after you. They will not stop until they have your fucking head on a pole. We will kill you, your family, we'll even kill your fucking dog, and hey, I like dogs. We will be unrelenting, we'll be worse than anything you can imagine. We will immediately start monitoring your every move and we'll know where you are 24/7 and when the time is right, we'll strike and, let me say again, we will fuck you up. You, your family and even your grand babies and all, every pet, everyone who you like and everyone who means anything to you and after you watch and know they are all dead, then we will kill you.”
