Today we are faced with an untenable situation. Either we accept the real possibility of an absolute mad man armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons, a lunatic who believes without question that G-D justifies his actions or we choose to act unilaterally to forestall his actions and ambitions. We have seen such men before in our not too distant past and so we should understand the real consequences of our failing to act and act forcefully and without hesitation. But who will find the real courage to act in this matter regardless of the potential outcomes? Must we be driven to the point of desperation in our own houses before we say enough is enough or will we finally decide the consequences do not out weigh the risks and take the matter firmly in hand? If I was in a position to make such a decision I would do so unhesitatingly. In other words,"Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead."
