The Only Candidate That Gets It

With the assassination of Benazir Bhutto yesterday, the Presidential candidates all spoke out on the tragedy, but only one appears to understand the full situation - Fred Thompson
Reacting to the assassination of former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson told WND, "This is a war, a clash of civilizations."

Thompson, commenting at the FAIR talk radio row in Des Moines, Iowa, said he suspected al-Qaida was responsible for the attack.

"The chance that a secular woman had a possibility of ascending to power in Pakistan drove the more radical Islamic elements in the country to violence," Thompson said.

The former Tennessee senator said the Bhutto assassination was "part of a much larger picture."

"This is an international war we are engaged in," he emphasized. "Bhutto's assassination is not a law enforcement matter. This is a global conflict, and al-Qaida wants to bring Western civilization to its knees."

Now there is a man that understands the big picture and the underlying truth to what is really happening in the world and the War on Terrorism.

This is also a man that should lead our foreign policy, unlike others, both Dems and Republicans, that want or think they can appease and negotiate a peace with these animals.

We are at war, and unless we deal with the enemy, we are bound to be overwhelmed and attacked again.

Mr Minority
