Muslim hatered of Jews, And Surgical Strike Defenses

Appeasement and withdrawal will never work. It emboldens our enemies, who want to kill us and create a global islamic caliphate. It is simple and clear that generally speaking, around the world Muslims hate the Jews and other infidels. Since there is not much we can do about that, we must focus on the actual problem of confronting the terrorism in terms that the enemy can understand.

The use of terrorism is the Islamic's world's attempt to parlay a mode of warfare against our defenses. To them, it is a method, a tool, and it is designed to kill as many innocent uninvolved civilians as possible. Why do they do this? The answer is simple:

Civilized modern surgical warfare uses precision strike capabilities in order to inflict the least amount of collateral damage. Translation - WE are doing things too cleanly.

Solution: Stop using precision weapons against people who confront us with indiscriminate weapons... .

It is ugly, but in the end less cruel, because with a strong punch in the nose, a bully will turn and run, especially if he is weak and wrong, thus ending the confrontation. But if you bargain with the bully, you can only loose your lunch money - and expect a sucker punch when your back is turned.

Peace in our time? Not if we show the kind of mercy that we do. It is a sad truth that the enemy must be destroyed, conquered, not bargained with nor appeased. There will be no peace in our time.

Sorry for such news folks, but you already knew it to be true
