An inspired line from Mark Steyn:

You can live as free men, with all the rights and responsibilities and vicissitudes of fate that that entails. Or you can watch your society decay and die before your eyes — as England, once the crucible of freedom, dies a little with every day.

And an awesome article about my favorite.

In unusually blunt language, Netanyahu said of the Iranian leadership, “You don’t want a messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs. When the wide-eyed believer gets hold of the reins of power and the weapons of mass death, then the entire world should start worrying, and that is what is happening in Iran.”

You know, every time I swoon over Netanyahu, I think about the funny exchange on South Park when Cartman tries to get the girls to scream and squeal over his new boy band:

CARTMAN: Let's go crazier than that! I mean, you have to act like it's freakin' Leonardo Di Caprio!

BEBE: We wouldn't give a rat's ass if Leonardo Di Caprio came walking past us.


CARTMAN: Fine! Who would you go crazy for?

THE GIRLS: ...Matt Lauer.

Paul Reynaud--who became Prime Minister of France just prior to the German invasion--said in 1940:

"People think Hitler is like Kaiser Wilhelm. The old gentleman only wanted to take Alsace-Lorraine from us. But Hitler is Genghis Khan."

In 2006, Ralph Peters--the writer and former army intelligence officer--said:

"One of the most consistently disheartening experiences an adult can have today is to listen to the endless attempts by our intellectuals and intelligence professionals to explain religious terrorism in clinical terms, assigning rational motives to men who have moved irrevocably beyond reason. We suffer under layers of intellectual asymmetries that hinder us from an intuititive recognition of our enemies."

See my post the face of the enemy.
