jpw your words provide no solution to the evil sins of man. You appear to advocate that we should leave the Afghan people to suffer and die under the oppression of the Taliban. And presumably the western nations should sit comfortably at home minding their own business and allowing the slaughter to continue - and also hope that it will just go away?
I take it you would have also left Hitler to continue his little plan too?
Narrowing this philosophy of yours down to a more localised area, do you also advocate that murderers, rapists and paedophiles in your town, should be allowed the freedom to continue their evil activities without hindrance or reaction?
Jesus said Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
Have you checked out "punishment" in the law of God?
