About a year ago, I began subscribing to an online newletter generated by Colonel Harry Riley, U.S. Army, Retired. Our initial interaction began after I contacted him in March of 2008 regarding an e mail circulating around the internet to which his name had been attached, which I suspected was a hoax. It turned out not to be, and in the course of establishing its authenticity I began a correspondence with him. The Colonel was just setting up his new cyberbase, Colonel Riley's Corner, so when he asked if I'd like to subscribe, I said sure. By then, through our burgeoning exchange of e mails, Harry and I were conducting fairly civil discourses about the upcoming elections, certain articles of legislation that had been or were about to be taken up by congress, and other current events. I decided to subscribe to his newsletter for the same reason I watch Bill O'Reilly or Sean Hannity: I like to monitor what people with differing viewpoints have to say. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer, the adage goes, so I occasionally listen to Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity, and their ilk with clenched teeth in order to stay informed about what they're spewing and doing. I subscribed to Harry's blog with great optimism that my unbridled passion for peace and prosperity (coupled with my persuasive way with a word) would eventually budge his unyielding, hard-line stance against his "enemies" and cause him to relent in his narrowminded pursuit of the evil he thinks Islam and its disciples (including, according to him, our president-elect) represent.
How wrong I was.
Mr. Shapiro says it the way I see responsing to terrorism......Israel can start the message
by dropping leaflets on Gaza advising the population they have 48 hours to abandon
Gaza City and perhaps one or two other major cities. At the end of the 48 hours, Gaza City
and perhaps one or two other major cities will be flattened, demolished, destroyed, and
any person that remains will be killed. Terrorist must feel the bite of "enough".
