	If I'm bitten by a rabid dog and I have it put down, that's not 
revenge.  That's prudence.  Faced with an incurable disease/mindset 
capable of causing more misery/illness/death one finds oneself in the 
invidious position of having to decide between several obviously 
unpleasant and previously unacceptable alternatives.  It's not fair - any 
of it - but it's the situation nonetheless.
