Extinction Rebellion and Suicide

I woke up, I read the news, and I got extremely p-ed off. A measure that Extinction Rebellion is hoping to employ involves suicide. Now, if this was just a group of adults fighting for something they believe in, fine. I can accept that.

You would think that after decades of competition and tension between Iran and the US that an all-out military conflict is inevitable. But if I were to ask you, will the US defeat Iran with nukes or nuts, we all know what the first reaction would be. And yet, here we are.
