Yes, Jim. I am not denying, or even objecting to, the way the thread has drifted. Just pointing out that it has as a consequence two strands, the original & the drift. The paste you chose to head that post with belonged to the first; the main contents of the post to the second. So your claiming any sort of equivalence between the two elements was tendentious, provocative, & intentionally misleading: a blatant piece of inapplicable "wotaboutery"; implying that the violent stoning to death of a woman for what would not even be a legal offence in other parts of the world than that where these sort of objectionable regimes obtain is somehow equivalent to the use of weapons in a war situation which may be disproportionately deployed. I still fail to see any sort of equivalence of the sort you claim; and I think you are foolish to imply that any even exists.

I don't know whether you will get the point of my drawing attention to this incongruity. But I hope there are others who will.
