12. Again, "ham-fisted and unilateral violence" seems to be reserved for certain parties

and condemned when traditional white privilege hasn't gotten its share in.

In any case, a situation where 95% of hostages were rescued in a violent confrontation with heavily armed militants - that doesn't sound "ham-fisted" to me. If it had been our marines doing the job, we'd say it was the act of heroes, and expertly carried out.
