Well, this Conservative anyway...
How should a Commander in Chief respond when one of the men that risks his life for the rights of that CIC's country is captured by another government?
In an unprecedented act Israel has "threatened to assassinate Palestinian Prime Minister Ismael Haniyeh if Hamas militants did not release a captured Israeli soldier unharmed." (source)
World politics aside, a soldier has been illegally captured and it must be dealt with. A message must be sent that this will not be tolerated. The terrorist's demands must not be met.
Right on. I wish Bush had the balls to do something like that...
This may turn out to be the catalyst for a full-on war in the Middle East.
Update: Israel is no joke --they "sent missiles tearing through the office of Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh [this morning] in an unmistakable message to his ruling Hamas group to free an Israeli soldier."
