THERE'S BEEN ANOTHER LETTER BOMBING IN ROME.
I have long argued that appeasement is bad because it REWARDS and therefore ENCOURAGES more bad behavior.
The recent spate of letter bombs in Italy proves the point.
The anarchists in Greece - who are apparently behind the recent letter bombs - have been emboldened by the tepid response of the Free World to terrorists - from AL Qaeda to Kim Jong Il and Ahmadinejad the Somali Pirates - for the last decade.
If Bush has not been a weak and appeasing military leader, then he would have NUKED Tora Bora in October of 2001 - killing OBL and sending the correct message to anyone and everyone who would attack us.
Instead of continuing attacks and kidnappings etc - they would be appeasing us. A Somali Pirate capturing an America or an ally would APOLOGIZE and free him with gifts.
And Obama is even worse than Bush when it comes to appeasing: he just passed START which makes us weaker and GIVES Russia and Putin PARITY with us, when we might have maintained a HUGE ADVANTAGE INSTEAD.
This is lunacy and TREASON.
If we really want to end the Age of terror, then we must be willing to fight total war and ERADICATE the enemy who won't surrender UNCONDITIONALLY.
Until we do that - until we fight like FDR and TRUMAN - WW4 will drag on, an ever-widening more dangerous war. And over time, the enemy just gets stringer - and it just becomes evermore likely that they'll get WMD and use them.
WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR THE APPEASERS TO WAKE UP!?!?!?
\I dread the thought.
I hope I survive that attack.
