Oh, Those Pesky Terrorists!

Dealing with radical Islamic terrorism is comparable to controlling "victimless" crimes, like prostitution and gambling.

Or so says Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry in his latest New York Times Magazine interview:

''We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance. . . I know we're never going to end prostitution. We're never going to end illegal gambling. But (like prostitution and gambling) we're going to reduce it (terrorism)."

Oh, those pesky terrorists. Just when you think we've cleaned up the neighborhood, they start lurking around our street corners and lowering our property values.

Time to fire up the vice squad, catch a few "Johns/Muhammads" in front of the liquor store, and make them spend a night in the clink. After all, who hasn't engaged in a little shady terrorism at some time in their life?

Maybe Kerry should get off of his back and quit pimping for the pacifist left. A President Kerry is a roll of the dice I'm not ready to make.
