What to do about heat without light . . .

Here’s a recent example of the effective use of sharp-edged rebuttal (see the comments) to puncture bloated and unthinking terror-mongering (see the post).

The point of these comments is that two wrongs don’t make a right.  The post-writer, a good example of tens of millions of like-minded others, is apparently oblivious.  I guess “turn the other cheek” and the golden rule have become quaint platitudes to him.

In my opinion this truly is the right time and place for rough exchanges like this.  As this administration gets ever closer to launching missiles at Iran, if only the MSM would feel 1% of the emotion and urgency displayed in the comments to this post.
