Reader comment on item: Don't deal with terrorists

Submitted by David W. Lincoln (Canada), Jan 25, 2006 at 15:25

If you substitute the IRA for Hamas, and change the time and place, we see the same pattern.

It is beyond me why the US would want to repeat the mistake made by her Brittanic Majesty's Government in thinking that once bloodthirsty goons are put in silk - they can be diverted from the path they were on.

They have to be taken out, so that they, and others, know they are accountable for their actions.
