Michael Goodwin: Give war a chance Michael Goodwin: Give war a chance

New York Daily News - Ideas & Opinions - Michael Goodwin: Give war a chance: Hezbollah starts a fight, so it's
time to teach terror a lesson
article makes somewhat similar points to that last post.
"Stop the violence" is the natural human response to these grisly images. It's how most of us feel and it's how United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan reacted, saying forcefully, "hostilities must stop." ...

Yet now is not the time to stop this brutal war. Human nature notwithstanding, peace is not always the best answer. Not when wrongs have to be righted. Sometimes, deadly force is the righteous option.

Like a schoolyard bully who deserves a thorough butt-kicking, Hezbollah needs to be taught a lesson. It can either learn to live in peace, or it can die. But it cannot win by playing the terror card and it cannot be allowed to think it's going to.
