Good for you Spencer! Meanwhile I would suggest that your original question was rhetorical and that your attempt to rationalise your own answer reminded me of attempts to rationalise dropping the atomic bombs on Japan. To say that dropping the A Bomb saved lives by preventing further deaths is false logic. Aggression cannot be justified by appeals to the hypothetical (if you want a recent Hollywood take on this theme, then see "Minority Report", or even better: read the original story by P.K.Dick)!
