While I do not claim that Uwe should or should not delete his signature
(my personal opinion is he need not delete it, but I am not 100% sure it
doesn't conflict with this list's standards), I feel obliged to point
out that the above opinion of Jean looks nonsensical.  From what I know,
Ukrainians do their best to _stop_ the war, and I find it probable that
what they are doing is a _just war_

An imperfect analogy.  Imagine a serial killer shooting at unarmed kids
in a school.  Imagine someone may or may not provide a weapon to a guard
who would then be able to kill the murderer.  Would you call giving the
guard a weapon "promoting continuance of further killing at that
school"?  I surely would not.  I _would_ prefer disarming the killer in
such a way that _he_ wasn't killed, obviously, but if that is not
possible, I consider it morally acceptable to kill him.
