genocide anyone?

that's apparently what trent lott is advocating now to solve that pesky iraq problem:

Honestly, it’s a little tougher than I thought it was going to be,” Lott said. In a sign of frustration, he offered an unorthodox military solution: “If we have to, we just mow the whole place down, see what happens. You’re dealing with insane suicide bombers who are killing our people, and we need to be very aggressive in taking them out.

unorthodox military solution? not really. what lott is proposing sounds to me like assad's treatment of hama, or armenia in 1915, or the warsaw ghetto uprising, or countless other instances when a group of people have resisted a more powerful military force and were massacred.
