I'm not the least bit impressed with this quote. Is the author suggesting in

luddite fashion that we should *NOT* use our technology to save the lives of our
brave service men and women, and our allies and instead opt to adopt the
troglodite methods of these backassward cowards that attacked us? Oh yeah let's
get on a camel with a sword and a AK-47 and meet them head on... because it's
more manly and macho.
