Letters: The Al Qaeda cancer

October 14, 2012

Re "Al Qaeda is rebuilding amid instability in Iraq," Oct. 10

It is no mystery what happens when treatment is abandoned before cancer is completely cured. It doesn't bargain; it has no conscience; it can't be reasoned with and will not stop until you are dead. Any resort to human

morals in the matter will prove a deadly misplacement of priorities and evidence a fundamental lack of understanding the enemy. Unless you carve it from your body or drive it from existence by whatever means available, you're doomed to early expiration.

This is what Al Qaeda is, a cancer to the body of humanity, and that is how it must be treated. If you're still considering diplomacy or other options, take a wake-up-and-face-reality pill and call me in the morning.
