Normally, I think that we all agree that killing another human being should only be an option when that other human being is going to kill you if you don’t.
Granted that some would say that you have the option of allowing your enemy to kill you and furthermore that is what you should do. I’m not buying that.
ISIS or ISIL tells us that it is going to kill us and that they will ‘see” us in New York etc. And that they will never cease their deadly rampage until all Christians are dead and gone. And they have proceeded precisely on the path they have described.
Isn’t this warning enough? Given the opening, these people will kill innocent persons in the most violent and degrading ways. The warning has been thrown down at our feet. I say that it clearly behooves us to destroy this menace on sight. To hesitate could bring the most disastrous consequences.
President Obama, as I see it, would be completely justified in seeking out the locations of these assassins, planning his attack in complete secrecy and then striking like a bolt of lightening, destroying every evidence of where their encampment was. And then on to the next.
Hopefully, after a few of these , ISIS will be ready to talk and behave like human beings.
