“leave behind smoking ruins and crying widows”

When Bill O’Reilly asked Lt. Col. Ralph Peters what his strategy would be to defeat the jihad, he said:

“You go wherever in the world the terrorists are and you kill them, you do your best to exterminate them, and then you leave behind smoking ruins and crying widows.”

Scientific American – How Can We Condemn Boston Murders But Excuse U.S. Bombing of Civilians?

Though I totally disagree with Ralph Peters, I respect his honesty. He admits innocents will be killed.

IF the USA wants to fight terrorists overseas, with drones or smart bombs, that’s probably the best way. Boots on the ground is the worst way.

Instead, foreign nations should isolate Islamic nations. Close embassies. Enforce boycotts. Freeze bank assets. Stop giving them an excuse for terrorism.

If you leave Islamic hotheads alone, it won’t be long before they are fighting each other.

Homeland security should be security within your own borders.
