Today the civilized world as we know it is threatened by the ignorance of left-wing extremism blinded by its ideological resistance to an all-out eradication of the savagery of radical Islam.
The warning signs are clearly evident both in Western Europe, where violent cultural eruptions fueled by short-sighted immigration policies have been allowed too long to fester, and the Middle East, where the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria slaughters humanity with total indifference and threatens further to attack America.
Confronted by a weak response by President Barack Obama, vital American interests are under increasing threat from Islamic extremism.
There is only one way to deal with this threat, and it is to confront and destroy it with overwhelming military force until it has been exterminated. Failing such a response, we face the threat of extinction. To seek another, less forceful solution is foolhardy.
