"You can't talk Military dictators to death no matter what your college professor thinks."
I think the idea is to try and find a peaceful resolution to a conflict and if it comes to that, take up arms in defense of yourself and those close to you.
Killing people resolves nothing and only escalates the situation.
Also, wasn't Jesus a proponent of pacifism?

So I guess that whole Sermon on the Mount thing was a bunch of BS. Who knew?

Summarily killing Saddam Hussein didn't "work". The ones who looked up to him can now make him a martyr and start worshiping him.
He should have been brought to The Hague and put on trial for crimes against humanity, along with his financiers.
Killing a dictator only makes his henchmen fight to take his position and become the new dictator.

You have no clue how many wars have been averted by the U.N. or co-operating neighbor countries.

So I can assume we'll be seeing you on the front lines killing "bad guys" (note the lack of apostrophe there)?
Of course not, how stupid of me.

Killing the "bad guy" sometimes works, but it often results in more problems, so it's best to find a peaceful solution if one can be found, it tends to work better long-term.

There are other issues too, for example the fact that in situations where there aren't stable systems or we have a strongman infrastructure where one person is the lynchpin for society removing them is more likely to cause anarchy. But then again it seems like this guy lives on oversimplification.
