Let it go.

Excellent....

Another version might be effectiveness (instead of safety) and fear (instead of revenge)...

Whose safety are we talking about?

It could be argued that a perpetrators safety is sacrificed as they lean towards revenge, or that the victim's safety decreases as revenge is visited on them.

It could also be argued that a victim who is aware of the revenge being visited on them would attempt to increase their safety, say by introducing a body guard!

Rob: People who make jokes about military recruiters and the recruiters who perpetuate the stereotypes of thoughtless patriotic child predators.

Violence breeds violence breeds violence breeds..hey! break the monotony. Stop the bombs, even the 'rightful' bombs

Then again, who cares for safety, if they have ever tasted sweet revenge? What a deeply satisfying feeling it must be, as in Shakespeare's tragedies, to have revenge your way, killig everyone off, happily bleeding to death as a moral equation solved? Your choice.

Very good!

By the way, I bought your book. In fact, I bought 3 and gave away 2 as gifts. Well done!

Exactly. This is why I'll tolerate my roommate for another 2 weeks.

You forgot to add the sweetness factor.

The outlier might be George Jr. who just wanted to get Saddam. I'm guessing he exists somewhere in the upper right quadrant.
