Mullah It Over

Reader comment on item: Deterring Tehran

Submitted by Ken (United States), May 10, 2006 at 10:31

America is paralysed by its politically correct, leftist leadership.

History has tought us that the only way to win a war of any kind is to destroy your enemy totally and completely.

This is how we won WW I and WW II. We bombed cities and destroyed their will to fight. We accepted nothing other than total and unconditional surrender.

This is also how the Babylonians conquered, the Assyrians conquered and the Romans conquered.

If terrorism is to be defeated, we must utterly destroy the infrastructure that supports it. We must accept nothing less than the total destruction of its war fighting capability. We must reduce terrorist supporting states to rubble with no illusions of spreading democracy.

No warnings.

No prisoners.

Complete and utter destruction.
