Hitchens on the latest terror attempt....

Once gain, Hitchens gets it right...
What nobody in authority thinks us grown-up enough to be told is this: We had better get used to being the civilians who are under a relentless and planned assault from the pledged supporters of a wicked theocratic ideology. These people will kill themselves to attack hotels, weddings, buses, subways, cinemas, and trains. They consider Jews, Christians, Hindus, women, homosexuals, and dissident Muslims (to give only the main instances) to be divinely mandated slaughter victims. Our civil aviation is only the most psychologically frightening symbol of a plethora of potential targets. The future murderers will generally not be from refugee camps or slums (though they are being indoctrinated every day in our prisons); they will frequently be from educated backgrounds, and they will often not be from overseas at all. They are already in our suburbs and even in our military. We can expect to take casualties. The battle will go on for the rest of our lives. Those who plan our destruction know what they want, and they are prepared to kill and die for it. Those who don't get the point prefer to whine about "endless war," accidentally speaking the truth about something of which the attempted Christmas bombing over Michigan was only a foretaste. While we fumble with bureaucracy and euphemism, they are flying high.

Kill them. The latest bomber was on a 'Watch List', he was watched getting terrorist training, watched while contacting other terrorists etc. Instead of watching and waiting for our enemies to bring the bomb to us, kill them.

Although Chris Hitchens went from firm left to centre right, he is about the only person from your side of the aisle that i have time for. Mainly because he doesn't care who he hits out at and refuses to be blinkered in his support for 'right' or 'left' issues. We all love someone who is unblinkered in their support don't we Fred.
Also because he is mostly drunk when he writes and that always makes good copy.

Christopher Hitchens is as far from centre right as you can get.

Try his Wikipedia entry for an introduction.

I do recall him describing himself as a libertarian a few years back which is probably about right. Puts him in the centre with a right wing leaning by way of support for the Iraq War and support for GWB.
