French Hostages: How Does It Feel?

Obviously, the taking of hostages is despicable, but we who have shouldered the responsibility of keeping the world safe for democracy for a century must think “how does it feel?” when we read this news.

The combination of rampant politically correct anit-religiosity with paranoid fear of self-defense has resulting in two French journalists in the hands of hostages who demand that France repeal its ban on Muslim headcovers.

Terrorism is the use of violence against non-combatants to advance a political cause. In this case, the Iraqi terrorists wish to influence French internal laws. France has two choices: capitulate or allow the terrorists to behead its citizens.

I have no idea which way France will go, but Spain caved. Don’t be surprised if France does the same.
