Don't bring a knive to a gun fight!!

Reader comment on item: [Lee Harris on Why the U.S. is] Discarding War's Rules

That's a saying we have here in Texas and elsewhere as well.

The appeasement policies of former Federal administrations are what got the WTC towers destroyed.

I heartedly agree with Daniel Pipes and Lee Harris that the only way to win this war is to take it to the enemy where ever they reside. I believe that this is what President Bush is doing. My greatest fear is that he may not be reelected next year. After that all bets are off. One thing that I am sure of is that a Democratic president will revert back to the pre-Bush appeasement policies which have had a lot to do with fueling Islamic terrorism.
