Americans really don't have much history of wars on our own turf. However, if someone attacks my country, my community, and I don't go find a gun and shoot back, I am an anarchist and an enemy of civilized, peaceful society, because I am unwilling to fight to defend it. That's pretty simple. Likewise, if one person starts attacking and killing peaceful citizens, he is to be fought by society as an enemy and a disease. If he is not fought, others will take his side against society. If you were paying attention, this is essentially what happened at VT.
