"You ask, What is our policy? I will say; It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us. . . . That is our policy. You ask, What is our aim? I can answer with one word: Victory--victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no survival." --Winston Churchill, first speech as prime minister to the House of Commons May 13, 1940 Those words were powerful in 1940. But could just as well be said in 2005. It was true then and it is true today. Some want to ignore or appease the Islamofascists and others feel it is a better policy to confront them wherever they might appear. Appeasement although a failure historically, is attractive because one doesnt have to do anything. Confrontation is the hard road - it costs blood and treasure but in the end confrontation means defeat for the enemy, as long as we dont deviate from the course.
