What, you have a problem with this?!? Or should the costs be defrayed, "We're all responsible for this, and we should all be held accountable." How indiscriminary. Welcome to postmodernity, enjoy your stay: do whatever you want while you're here. Mr. Sade, you here too? - glad to see it.

The point is to hold people responsible for what they do. Universal guilt is a wash for particular acts of barbarism. I say, bring 'em up before a war crimes tribunal. And I'm not talking about "terrorists" here.
