I hear what you're saying and I used to wonder and try to really understand that. I really try and look at things from the perspective of others,
even when those positions can be extreme. That one? I can't fathom.
As you note, if it's for a specific cause and purpose at that moment? Yeah...maybe. One thing I recall hearing a Navy SEAL say after 9/11 was that
their side weren't alone in having people willing to die for their beliefs, and that's true enough I'd say. Dying well and throwing one's life
away are two radically different things tho..and that is where I lose any ability to see their side.
Committing suicide to murder others, when that will change nothing but adding a story to a newspaper back page and perhaps, a note in history books
for events on a given day ...just seems like the ultimate waste. Yet, they're doing it on a regular basis. I guess it's one of many aspects we may
never understand about those we fight and who fight us. Perhaps another reason to break off when possible and not return to this fight. We can't win
what we can't even understand the other sides motivations to.
