Sad to hear of person losing his life, but the positive side of a 22 year old surviving, or rather, avoiding God-knows-what, greatly outweighs that.
I'd be proud if my daughter or wife could defend herself like that, too.

Some time ago I got into an argument with an anti-gun lobbyist (or that's what he thought he was) and I said that in such cases, the person defending himself and his home was "at war".  He asked me what I meant, and I said that once he (my friend the anti-gun lobbyist) could perfectly accept that politicians send a soldier to kill a complete stranger in a foreign land, then he should have no problem accepting that Joe Civilian is allowed to defend his own land and his own home from a possibly for more dangerous "stranger".

Till this day I cannot forget the look of puzzlement on his face.  The dilemma was too strong to take.

Prevention is better than cure...and that's what this lady did.

Even worse is when a government sends its troops across borders to kill others in their native country. And they expect me to cheer them as saviors?

That depends dosen't it? Opium and terrorism is nasty stuff dude, I've been professionally involved with both. Had they impacted on you or your family you might have a different outlook, I consider allied armed services giving all are certainly saviours.........

.....Georgia and Russia invading South Ossetia as an example. A clear case of power struggle and ego.

Russia is not apart of the NATO alliance, as far as I know but I do take exception to general comments made by yourself, which would lead to the impression that you include military  accets of the EU (well some of them) and our allies currently deployed in theatre............
