Mr. President: What took you so long?

Reader comment on item: Bush Declares War on Radical Islam

Better late than never. However, one has to wonder whether the President's speech will translate into a consistent policy toward the War Against Israel.

Will the President help Ariel Sharon stick to his position that Hamas (and other Islamo-Fascist groups operating in the Palestinian Authority) must disarm before moving forward with "the road map", or will the President cave to State Department's pressure and allow an Islamo-Fascist terrorist group to remain armed with lethal weaponry while making demands for further Israeli territorial and political concessions to the PA?

History suggests the State Department is going to win out on this one.
