Someone Finally Said It

My new hero Congressman Tom Tancredo said this the other day:
Talk show host Pat Campbell asked the Littleton Republican how the country should respond if terrorists struck several U.S. cities with nuclear weapons. "Well, what if you said something like -- if this happens in the United States, and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you know, you could take out their holy sites," Tancredo answered.
"You're talking about bombing Mecca," Campbell said.
Tancredo responded.
The congressman later said he was "just throwing out some ideas" and that an "ultimate threat" might have to be met with an "ultimate response."

Tancredo has led the charge to get someone to do something to close the border in the southern US. I liked him big time for that - and this sends a very good message to those who would dirty nuke us. It is the way it has to be. I think scenarios like this have been talked about a lot in DC but finally, someone has the cahones to actually say it.

This also puts pressure on the Saudis and any other states that are openly supporting these thugs.

and after the next IRA attack the UK should nuke Rome, right?

Uhh No, millersam - last time I checked the IRA operated out of Ireland, but who am I to fact check a sage like you. Back to my point. If you are left with no alternatives, such as if the US is dirty nuked with several cities being hit at the same time as the linked article states (which you apparently did not read) there is only so much you can do. Next time you comment, pose something intelligent and maybe a solution or two - or stick to commenting at some other site of appeasers like at Kos or Atrios - you may feel more at home over there.
