It's hard to muster pith and snark in the face of unbridled insanity:
For the enemies of America, Iraq is like a laboratory where they are testing our mettle, with mounting ferocity. The negotiations with Sadr; the half-hearted raids on Fallujah; our timid response to daily insurrections throughout Iraq; America's outrageously deferential treatment of its enemies -- all of these instances of moral weakness reinforce the view of bin Laden and his ilk that America will appease those who seek its destruction.

If we continue to confess doubts about our moral right to defend ourselves, it will only be a matter of time before Islamic militants bring suicide-bombings and mass murder (again) to the streets of the United States.

How deep does blood thirst run? Is the Salvador option hard, tough, and manly enough for these people? If we've killed 15,000 civilians, are we being too deferential? What if it's 100,000?

Wrap your head around this. We've gone to war twice since September 11, 2001. We unleashed "shock and awe" on Iraq. We're rattling the saber at Iran again. If this is appeasement, then we're only left with the Coulter option:

We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity. We weren't punctilious about locating and punishing only Hitler and his top officers. We carpet-bombed German cities; we killed civilians. That's war. And this is war.
