All I'm trying to say is that if you get on the bus, that takes you to the train, that takes you to the camp where you die, isn't that suicide any
way? for you and your family?
I don't believe you understand the severity of the situation my friend.
Ever heard of Warsaw? About 1500 half starved Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto got their hands on around 20-30 german army pistols and a couple boxes of
German stick grenades. They were facing off against 12,000 german troops including SS troops and a panzer division.
Those 1500 or so Jews consisted of men and women. The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising lasted 28 days. They held out against direct assaults, artilary and air
strikes, as well as tank attacks. That alone should prove to us that a man defending his family from invaders, beit criminal or tyrinical, is worth
more than 20 trained soldiers. I know this to be fact.
What we should also take away from Warsaw is that it's always worth fighting. If there is the glimmer of a chance of freedom being restored in a
situation as dire as that, wouldn't you take it? If starving and outnumbered you suddenly found arms would you not start the uprising?
I woudn't want historians saying about Americans what they said about the citizens of Babi Yar. We don't go out like that.
