    How do folks like this even stand to look themselves in the mirror?

    Iraq should be bombed from air to quell terrorists

    Speaking after the London attack, British Prime Minister Tony Blair was no Churchill when he stated that the vast Muslim people were really innocent in this matter, and that in defending ourselves, we must not even think of harming them. The truth is different. Terrorists worldwide live comfortably in Islamic countries. After every bloody success, Muslims smile approvingly. If we act on Blair’s mistaken idea, we will surely lose this conflict with terrorism.

    The Islamic religion does not respect our moral standards, but ennobles violence to others as the expression of God’s will. Our restrained responses to violence merely convince them that we are weak and decadent.

    In World War II, we confronted two militaristic societies. Our air force’s merciless pummeling of civilians changed their hearts and minds and established the years of peace we still enjoy. This lesson should not be forgotten.

    In Iraq, terrorists have no defense against strategic, citywide bombing. It would cost us no casualties to hit them hard enough to convince them that Allah is on our side.

    So I guess Dresden was a really good idea after all? And suggesting that we bomb civilians just a week after London was bombed is absolutely nuts! If any city in the world should serve as a lesson on how ineffective this strategy would be, it would be London. Somewhere, Santayana is rolling over in his grave.

    No doubt, a product of the public school system, prone to labratory thinking and oblivious to anything outside of the cause and effect he is trying to create.
