  • It would be creative

    As far as creative retribution goes, you could do a lot worse than rattlesnakes. If the goal is to scare or startle but not necessarily maim or harm, then I can get behind it. Obama should have responded to Russian interference in the Presidential election by sending Putin a basket of snakes.

  • No,the rattlesnakes should not be used as revenge.

    No,the rattlesnakes should not be used as revenge. First, because the rattlesnake is a very dangerous animal in the world. Second, most of the British people are friendly, and they love the people from everywhere on the earth. Third, if who injured by other countries's people, he will send rattlesnakes to the others, it will become out of control in the world.Besides,maintaining world peace is our unshirkable internationalist duty.So, I did not support this view. Finally,the rattlesnakes should not be used as revenge.

  • Animals should not be used as weapons.

    Benjamin Franklin's view that rattlesnakes should be used as weapons against the British was a suggestion that would have been both dangerous and lacking a true social conscious. Rattlesnakes are a deadly animal and the potential for collateral damage are enormous. Also, sending rattlesnakes to an area that is not one of their typical habitats could result in lasting negative effects to multiple ecological systems.
