It's Time To Push Forward

Fire of Liberty

Here's a good column by Saul Singer in the Jerusalem Post that points out why the War on Islamic Fascism is far different than the wars of yesteryear and how Israel, the US and the West have to be more vigilant and willing to take all steps necessary to take on terror states like Syria and Iran(And finishing the job properly in Iraq) thus killing the terrorists like Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Al Qaeda by shutting down their funding, support and refuge. It might seem that we can't handle another campaign in these places but if we keep putting things off till a later time we run the risk of Iran developing a nuclear weapon which is much like handing a killer a knife and saying kill me. So instead of us twiddling our thumbs and allowing the wily Ahmadinejad to use Mike Wallace(See here and here) and the American airways to shape the arguments on his own grounds, we need to get more aggressive with our enemies and use every tool in our tool-box to clean up the snake pit that dispatches its deadly vipers to destroy the West. Now is not the time to rest.
