The Week The World Woke Up

Finally Europe is shocked -- shocked! -- at the terrorist attacks that took about 20 French lives. But why wasn't the world shocked into action after September 11, when 10 times that number of people were killed? Again, political correctness and complacency have reared their ugly heads.

I agree with the sentiments of Colonel Ralph Peters, who bluntly said this:
"One, you accept that you are in a war. Two, you name the enemy: Islamist terrorists. Three, you get the lawyers off the battlefield and out of the targeting cell. You accept there will be collateral damage, and do you not apologize for it, you do not nation build. You don’t hold — try to hold ground. You go wherever in the world the terrorists are and you kill them. You do your best to exterminate them, and then you leave, and you leave behind smoking ruins and crying widows. If in five or ten years they reconstitute and you have got to go back, you go back and you do the same thing and you never never never send American troops into a war you don’t mean to win.”
