Very interesting stuff here from NY Sun.
Obama’s proposed “authorization” limits U.S. involvement, whereas now it’s not limited.
Declaration of War, as Trump intends, puts us on a war-to-victory footing. None of the live-with-terrorism motif as announced by the French premier post-Nice — and I’d say lurking in the background of our “new normal” president as in the matter of slow economic growth and hard economic times.
Neither America nor France has to learn to live with terror. Nor does anyone have to accommodate it.
This was one of the points that Ariel Sharon used to make in the years leading up to — and during — his passage as prime minister of Israel. “Fight terror,” was his mantra. He said it to us and thousands of others at every turn.
All Americans are with France, and all Americans know that our country is every bit as much of a target as the land that gave us Lafayette. It’s not a fight from which any country can shrink.
