Tom Tancredo, please shut up.
The Republican Representative from Colorado's 6th District really stuck his foot in it yesterday in a radio interview in Florida. Bombing Mecca in retaliation for a (God forbid) nuclear attack on the US? That would make our troubles even worse should such an attack happen. There's a smart way to win the War on Terror, then there's overkill. This is a case of overkill combined with a need to make oneself sound tough on terror. Congressman Tancredo, much like I said to my Senator from Illinois a few posts ago, shut up and step down. You're not making this any easier for the troops or for those who want them to win this war.
