Fighting terrorism without military options
Interviewed on Fox News, Mort Kondracke notes:
|I think this has been a disastrous week for the Democrats across the board. When they're not incoherent, then they're defeatist.... And then we have John Kerry who's back in the picture. Made another speech today, which basically said that George Bush is doing nothing except military operations in order to -- in order to fight Islamic terrorism...
'Nothing except military options'? Is there another option against suicidal extremists who target women shopping, children at toy hand-outs, and civilians lined up for jobs? What would Kerry do? Sit down in the Brussels Hilton conference room, hand out courtesy gift bags commemorating the event, and negotiate terms of surrender with Al Qaeda?
If there are other options besides terminating the fanatics with extreme prejudice, I haven't heard about them. And this is example #4,323 in my continuing series entitled, "yet another reason why the Defeatocrats can't be allowed anywhere near the levers of power in this country."
