some of us believe that the simile of war is inappropriate; among other 
things, we have to live together with the persons on the other side for a 
long time to come, since people rarely end up dead in this discussion.

however, this being an information age conflict, all that we HAVE to 
"shoot" is information, and the ultimate "kill" is to convince your 
opposition that he is misguided and should change his approach.

shooting someone for passing bullets into the enemy? not likely.
