Which leads to another point

Just because you extend mercy and forgiveness to somebody does not mean you are obliged to be a pacifist toward them. I hope for bin Laden’s salvation and the salvation of the members of Al-Quaeda. I also hope that, barring their extremely unlikely renunciation of violence, we can track down and jail or kill every last one of them. God is their judge. My task is to keep my family and my people safe. For the same reason, I hope for Saddam’s salvation. But I also hope he will be behind bars or dead by Christmas. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to convert. It is our job to do such right as can be done by our meager powers. Stopping a ruthless murderer who has called for terrorist acts against my country from acquiring WMD and the means to deploy them is one way to do that.
