Whoever Survives, Go Kick Their Asses

Going into this Labor Day weekend, the media is getting hysterical (again) over another group of terrorists. This time it’s the newly created ISIS (or ISIL) who has emerged into the spotlight, having beheaded James Foley recently.

Personally, I think the best way to handle terrorism is to tell terrorists that we’re not afraid of them.

I refer you to the Paulie character from the Rocky movies, played by Burt Young. Whenever he was in a spot that would worry a mortal man, Paulie would look at his adversary and say four simple words: “I don’t sweat you.”

That’s how we should handle terrorism. Whoever wants to hurt us can’t kill ALL of us. We will mourn the dead and those taken away from us too soon, just like we’ve done in the past. Whoever is left will avenge the dead and make the terrorists rue the day they messed with us.

Doesn’t matter who the president is, doesn’t matter how many die from a terrorist attack or who they are. Whoever survives, go kick ass. It’s that simple, and it’s that approach that we need to take.
