The terrorists we now confront will never just go away. They will not be satisfied until our way of life is obliterated. They cannot be bargained with. There is nothing we can do to appease them. There is no area of compromise and no hope for peaceful co-existence. They have one goal: our annihilation as a society followed by mandatory compliance with their belief system.
If they were given the entire Middle East and all Western interests and influence were totally withdrawn, they would not stop.
You either face these facts and fight with all you have for as long as it takes, using every tactic and resource available to destroy them first on their turf, or cash in and surrender to their eventual control and way of life. The course of empathy and understanding is not only naive but treasonous.
Do you want a free, one-of-a-kind United States of America, or would you prefer to join the dust bowl of once-great civilizations?
