I am not comparing the two situations-YOU ARE. I merely drew a contrast between her chosen method and his. Obviously she would need greater support in order for the peacful method to be effective. However, that still doesn't justify taking of human life hat way. Neither does it necessarily follow that because some third-world country is worse off any other country will meet the same fate. There are many social political variables involved which makes the certainty of such a defeatest conclusion premature and unwarranted
