Maybe They Can Call It the 'War on Terror'

Nothing like the smartest woman in the world waking up to the reality we've all faced the last eight years. Imagine how slow on the draw she'd be if she weren't so brilliant.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Saturday for a global fight against terrorism after paying tribute to victims of last year's deadly Mumbai attacks, as she began a visit to India.

Clinton, on her first trip to India as Washington's top diplomat, linked the attacks which left 166 people dead to those in the United States on September 11, 2001 and Friday's deadly hotel bombings in Jakarta.

"These events are seared in our collective memory," she told a news conference at the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, where she is staying and where 31 guests and staff lost their lives during the Islamist militant siege.

"Yesterday's bombings in Jakarta, Indonesia, provide a painful reminder that the threat of such violent extremism is still very real. It's global, ruthless, it's nihilistic and it must be stopped.
Of course if we leave it up to Democrats and their policy of reading Miranda rights to terrorists and trying to prosecute those who've led the fight against terrorism, things will only get much worse.
