All out War is the solution

Reader comment on item: Israel's Unnecessary War in Lebanon

Submitted by Ralph C Whaley MD (United States), Jul 18, 2006 at 17:33

When a moral government, that is a government which acknowledges and defends the individual rights of its citizens, is attacked by a tyrannical government and or its agents the only moral and practical response is retaliatory war of overwhelming force that destroys the ability and, most important of all, the will of the attacking government and its agents to continue the fight.

The sign of that end is unconditional surrender as the Japanese and Germans did in WW 11. Neither Japan nor Germany has any inclination or interest in waging war on America or any moral nation. The consequence for Germany and Japan has been an enormous increase in prosperity and enjoyment of life in those nations. Neither one has come close to our governemnt's founding virtues and America has lost a great deal of understanding of the nature and importance of Individual rights.

The only proper purpose of our government is the protection of those rights. I long for and work for our country to fully understand these principles and in the present context to defend our country with the full capability of our military forces which can annihilate those governments waging war against America and Israel with ease if and when we understand the urgency of such action. I fervently hope that it does not take a nuclear attack on America to make clear to us the seriousness of those who openly state that America is the Great Satan and the will not rest until they have wiped America from the face of the earth.
