Simply put, two wrongs don't make a right.
Back to the topic at hand though...
I disagree with your thesis, your thread title. Yes, there are problems in this world, but there is no honor in your solution. Quitting is no way to win.
You cannot have good without bad, peace without war, life without death, and vice versa; it is the duality that we live in, a mystery that will probably never be understood.
What I do understand, though, is that life is beautiful, a gift, the best gift. I'm not ready to give up yet. I see good everyday of my life, because I choose to look for it. The media likes to focus on the bad because it is more dramatic, it foments a more emotive response in the viewership, which consequently increases their ratings. Go figure.
A suggestion: If you don't want so much heat from opposing viewpoints, perhaps you should revise your thread title. In a previous post you said something along the lines of: "How do we remove the cancer of the Earth without harming the healthy?" This is a much better perspective, and I think it would help you achieve the productive debate and conversation you were hoping for.

It would make you a hypocrite because a life is a life. You would be killing innocent people. And that would make you no better than any other murderer.

How about giving a reply that actaully took some thought?
Why should he, when you haven't put a shred of honest thought into the whole damned thread as of yet.
Why the hell not just call humanity exactly what it is. Any human population outside of sub-Saharan Africa is an invasive species.
