    Fighting fire, with fire is the only way.

    You know I gotta admit Psy, I'm impressed with how diligently you resist violence as an option to the violence.

    I did a quick search of the riot threads dating back over a year and read your posts. You do hold firm to avoiding it.

    Of course in the last year and a half, that violence has continued to grow, expand and escalate in severity.

    You don't fight fire with fire; you fight it with water or chemicals. What, you have a house fire so you light some more stuff on fire and that's going to fix it? I'm not even sure where that expression came from.

    An extreme fire fighting technique for forest fires or grasslands where a back-fire is started to create a barrier from an approaching wild fire.

    Thank you, and I stand corrected because that is an appropriate method for the context of this conversation.
