Us Or Them
Christopher Hitchens on the US war with Islamofacism:
"Never mind the principles for one minute, but the lesson of realism is: that if you don’t fight them now you fight them later. They [Islamist radicals or, as Hitchens calls them, Islamo-fascists] gave us no peace and we shouldn’t give them any. We can't live on the same planet as them and I'm glad because I don’t want to. I don’t want to breathe the same air as these psychopaths and murders and rapists and torturers and child abusers. Its them or me. I'm very happy about this because I know it will be them. It’s a duty and a responsibility to defeat them. But it's also a pleasure. I don’t regard it as a grim task at all."So let's get on with it.
