Weird Example

We were learning a sort of Management/Psychological thing, and the teacher was making a point. The point could have been made very simply. But instead of using a normal example, the teacher asked whats the chances Israel will go to war this year and suffer many casualties. Then the next question was whats the chances Israel will go to war because of a terror attack and have many casualties. Then she made some point that I totally didnt follow since I was shocked at the example used. She couldve made the same point using any other country, or any other kind of example. why choose that one??!

Why be creative when that's the easiest choice.

OC, that reasoning is sick. Don't you think a little sensitivity in the classroom is in order?

Of course I do. I was being sarcastic. If you're not in a political science, military thought, pscyhology class, or even economic class etc. it's a rediculous example or scenario to use. In a management class, it has no validity and shouldn't have been used. But, again, I'll be clear, it is a legitimate scenario to use in a class-room, when it's warranted and ralevant. Here, it clearly was not.
