You Should Read Every Word They Write:
Friday, August 06, 2004Jonah rocks as always in shredding Kerry up like a tree in a woodchipper for wanting to fight a "sensitive" war. I laughed out loud when I read that Kerry had said that. The very notion -- a "sensitive war on terror" is comical.
Hello there, Mr. Terrorist, we've come to try to converse with you about the possibility of you, well, not killing all those people at the Mall of America. What can we do to change your mind about that? We certainly don't want to force anything upon you, but we thought that a little encounter session with a neutral mediator might help resolve the issues we have that separate us. Afterwards, maybe we can all join hands and sing Kumbaya.
Here's the money quote from Jonah:
Listening to these folks, one gets the sense that America's greatest foreign-policy triumph was to get sucker-punched on 9/11 because it resulted in sympathetic newspaper headlines in Paris and Berlin.
Reminds me of good old Warren Christopher. Back when he was working the Middle East desk in the Carter Administration, he was in on the briefing for the failed (and humiliating) Desert One hostage rescue. The grizzled Special Forces commander said that when they got to the embassy they were going to "shoot any hostage-takers they found right between the eyes". Christopher apparently thought this was a bit much, and raised his hand to ask "Do you have to kill them? Couldn't you just shoot them in the arm or the leg and wound them?"
That guy ended up as our Secretary of State. At least I think he did. He's pretty easy to miss.
