Deal With Terrorists!

Reader comment on item: Don't deal with terrorists

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Jan 26, 2006 at 16:06

Terrorists are like wild animals. They can and must be dealt with in the only way possible. Force is the method. When men initiate force against other men they have abandoned reason. Persuasion is impossible in that context. The moral and practical way to deal with terroristsis to grant them their wish and respond with force to destroy them in righteous self defense.
