    I don't quarrel with the fact that you assert that. However, it does
    not follow from Alan's statement.

    And if non-rebellion by a citizenry against immoral behavior by its
    government justifies the slaughter of that citizenry, then, to quote
    Jefferson in a slightly different context, " Indeed I tremble for my
    country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot
    sleep forever."
