Tough Talk on Terrorism
No, it's not from Barack Obama, it's from Vladimir Putin. This is how it's done: "'Dear friends, we bow our heads before the victims of cruel terrorist acts. I am certain that we will fiercely and consistently continue the fight against terrorists until their complete annihilation,” Putin said in an unusual, second televised address close to midnight Tuesday, according to The Globe and Mail." No mincing of politically correct words here. It reminds me of how President G.W.Bush spoke after September 11 and said, "The United States of America will use all our resources to conquer this enemy. We will rally the world. We will be patient. We'll be focused, and we will be steadfast in our determination. This battle will take time and resolve, but make no mistake about it, we will win."
