Today marks the one-year anniversary of the day that coalition forces moved into Iraq to eliminate the terrorist threat posed by Saddam Hussein and his cabal. We were successful and nearly nine months later, Saddam Hussein was captured while hiding in a rat hole. Now the Iraqi people have freedom, can protest openly, and now have a democratic interim constitution.
Terror is not something one should live with. It is something which the Israel and the US governments are obligated to completely destroy. No normal government should sit down and negotiate with murderers.
Our only option is to destroy the enemy first and that is why pre-emption has been the right answer all along.
