First you shoot the messenger of truth and then cry victim afterward.
Seriously, look at the example set by the US government. No matter what the problem is, shoot it! Iraq's nuclear weapons? Shoot everybody (even though the nukes didn't exist). Afghanistan? Shoot them. North Korea? Shoot them (twice). Vietnam? Shoot them, then apologize. Japan? Shoot them, then buy TVs and computers from them. Germany? Shoot them, then buy cars from them. Cuba? Shoot them, then sneer at them forever. Indians sitting on land you want? Shoot them, then give them blankets infected with smallpox.
Gee, I wonder why Americans grow up thinking that shooting people is the first thing to try.
