Submitted by Jim Marsico on 7/24/06 at 1:52 PM. ( ) "Those who would trade our freedom for the soup kitchen of the welfare state have told us that they have a utopian solution of peace without victory. They call their policy 'accommodation.' And they say if we only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he will forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy one, but a simple one—if you and I have the courage to tell our elected officials that we want our national policy based upon what we know in our hearts is morally right... [E]very lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face." —Ronald Reagan

he also appeased terrorists by pulling out of Lebanon when our valant marines were bombed. Then Clinton did the same thing in Samolia. Many middle east experts maintain Bin Laden was encouraged by this and based a lot of his strategy on these precedences.

Maybe no one watched the clip, Jim.

Too bad we couldn't actually drop a bomb right into the center of that trash and get rid of them all at once.

But, in retrospect one of the statements made was, "let them come to our land and try to disarm us."

I think we in America hold these same truths to be self-evident concerning our own government. We simply aren't willing to die for our ideals anymore.

One thing is certain...there will never be an end to war, or the evil thoughts of war, when mankind is in charge of its own destiny. do you think that's why God gave his only begotten son to save mankind?
