Hamas: The legacy of the Bush/Clinton failure

Reader comment on item: [The Hamas Electoral Victory:] Democracy's Bitter Fruit

Submitted by Thomas Earl Cannady (United States), Jan 27, 2006 at 22:27

Is it any wonder Hamas has come to power. We see radical Islam every where in the Middle East and I am sure Iraq will be no different. I do not want my fellow southerners dying in any foreign country since we make up most of those who serve.

I am not for war, nor do I want to kill or die to support someone else having a government similar to my own. So what do we do? We stop letting the UN and conservative foreign policy ruin the world. Killing people is not working so let us try some other type of inducement. Hey don't we have the capacity to feed the world? What if we stop exporting food and medical supplies to countries that support or maintain diplomatic relations with terrorist?

Yes I know this is an old question but if we stop feeding and healing them it will be easier to stop them from killing others so they can all have their twelve virgins in heaven or whatever they think they will get for killing anyone who disagrees with them.
