Here's former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's take on the upcoming war on terrorism: "Take away all the state support, and the entire terrorist scaffolding will collapse," Netanyahu said. "It is time to establish a fixed principle: Terrorism will be punished. Severely punished." Eradicating Israel is not the main goal of most of these groups, Netanyahu said. [u]Their overarching purposes are to force all Western influences out of the Islamic countries and make Islam dominant by concentrating on inflicting increasing pain on the United States[/u]. Netanyahu also warned that many of the nations supporting the network are developing weapons of mass destruction that terrorists could use in future attacks. "Does anyone doubt that, given a chance, they would throw atom bombs at America? And before that, chemical and biological weapons?" Netanyahu said. [b]"We have received a wake-up call from hell. The time for action is now."[/b] Based on Israel's experience, Netanyahu also said: _The United States and its allies should use pre-emptive strikes to stop suspected terrorist activities. _Improved intelligence and police work may ease the problem but will not stop it. _In tracking down individuals such as Osama bin Laden, the United States should not wait for "legalisms" necessary for a court conviction. "It is not court of law," he said. "It is a field of war." _The American people must "see themselves as soldiers" and be prepared for sacrifice, including casualties among military personnel and civilians. "They have to have a moral outrage in them but not crumble in the face of these attacks." Excellent analysis from someone who's been there, done that, in fighting terrorist attacks against his people and his country!

How is this possible in the long term, with schools banning dodge ball and trying to weed out "aggressive behavior" in young boys? I seriously doubt the forthcoming generations will be up to the task. Now, if we were to rid the school system of pansies and wimps, perhaps. But in doing so, we have to prepare ourselves for the 1 in 1 billion chance that one boy may bring a gun to school one day. I doubt the schools will ever go for it. Now is the time for mandatory military service, just like they do in Israel and elsewhere. The loss of a couple of years between high school and college doesn't mean a hill of beans.
