I recommend reading the entire article, but here are some short excerpts, worthy of note:
Churchill had a very valid point in rejecting such nonsense. To win against a ruthless enemy, you have to be ruthless yourself.
Translation: Fight fire with fire.
Moreover, you cannot impose on yourself the burden of moral and legal constraints if you seriously want to win against an enemy who has no principles at all; you will earn endless accolades and honours for doing so, but you will not win.
One area this administration deserves criticism is, they have tried to fight a politically correct war. There is no such thing.
And if your enemy thrives on vitriol and hatred, the last thing you are obliged to do is give him a platform at a show trial to go on spreading more of his poison.
Which is precisely what the left desperately wants to do, give them a voice. They don't want a voice, they want to kill. But if you give them that voice, they just further proclaim the weak and lame reasons, they want to kill.
Most people would agree that Winston Churchill was one the greatest leaders Britain has ever had. Yet, it amazes me how very little they are willing to follow his example and heed his words, today.
