Or perhaps they are of the type of pacifist that recognizes the futility of eliminating fighting and instead believes in minimizing
fighting, through application of extreme overkill? I'd hate to wage war against logical Vulcans who put no weight on the illogical history or obscure traditions of warfare, and may at any moment decide to go way beyond ruthless to arrive at their chosen goal in the conflict.
Okay, so they do have some historical ballast of their own when it comes to fighting. But while they may bring a lirpa to a gunfight, they will also be sure to remember to bring an H-bomb, and bushido be damned.
