This is a MUST READ article, written by Thomas Sowell, one of my favorite columnists and thinkers. Iran has stated they are going to kill us, and one of our presidential candidates wants to “talk” to our assassins first. The next 4 years will be critical for our nation’s survival or Iran’s. Who will survive intact is the question.
Hitler expressed the same disdain for the west and our culture in the 1930’s, and history tells us what he did. The appeasers then, like many of our politicians today and especially Obama, want to repeat the same mistake. The only thing that Iran and the Islamic terrorists understand is definitive action. Words are used as a weapon against the west. We value words and agreements between parties, they don’t. They use this understanding of us as a weapon against us; period.
Unless we take the threats from Iran and others seriously enough to take action, their plan continues to work in their favor. It buys time, knowledge, and nukes. We will be defeated at the table of negotiation because we will be alone there, while the bombs start dropping on western targets. And history, if there is any then, will tell us that the strategy used by our enemy was the knowledge that they knew we would do anything we could to stall action against them.
We must act; period!
