even the term 'assail' can have a positive connotation-'to make a resolute start on (a task)'. let's hope the oppressive regimes will begin to assail their people with resolute good-heartedness!

There can only be peace when the governments of the world stop the war machine and stop making weapons of death. When the power of love overthrows those who love power, only then will there be peace X
