“Might as well” is not a good reason to start a war. But thank you for not waving the scriptures at me. :)
“Might as well is not a good reason to start a war.”
“Might as well” is not the reason to start the war. The reason is Evil Smurf is an anti-semitic nut who swore to destroy my homeland with nuclear weapons, has actively pursued our destruction, is currently pursuing a proxy war, and will shortly have nuclear weapons and the means to deliver them -— and he will.
“Might as well” is the response to your stated concern that people would be mad at Israel.
The world is mad at Israel and hates Jewish people, for no logical reason.
Been that way since Mt. Sinai, scripture or no scripture.
