Editor's Note: The following are excerpts from The Fight of Our Lives: Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth, and Choosing to Win the War Against Radical Islam by Bill Bennett and Seth Liebsohn.
As we were working on final edits, the news broke that terrorists from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula had attempted to place bombs on cargo airliners headed to the United States. The day before, the news from the war front was in Washington, D.C., where it was revealed that one Farooque Ahmed (who lived in Ashburn, Virginia) was arrested for plotting to blow up Metro stations in the Washington area. Just the week before that, the nation was in an uproar over NPRs firing of contributor Juan Williams for his statement made on Fox News: [W]hen I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.

Off to Amazon to have a look.
Looks like strong stuff...
Yes, I plan to buy a copy.
I chewed through the G. W. Bush book and have Tony blair stacked with a few other gifts arriving on Christmas. I’ll put this one in line...
Bennett’s always good, so I’ll be buying this one on faith. It’s going to be depressing though...1.5B muslims out there, fight of our lives is right.
Rummy’s book was pretty good. A little dry but a great look at history through someone who has had a front seat view.
How a regime treats its children in wardoes it protect them, or use them?is a good test for the regimes legitimacy and designs. During Irans war against Iraq in the 1980s, the mullocracy showed us its view of life, childrens life, by sending out preteens and teenagers to sweep minefields in advance of the Revolutionary Guard. They had no particular training or military equipment. The mines would be discovered as bits of the child scattered to the four winds. Sensitive to the likelihood of death, the mullahs provided each child with little plastic toy keys that promised to unlock paradise after the bombs detonated. Waves of children were so employed, marching into enemy fire while mines blew beneath their feet. Khomeini ordered half a million of the keys to supply the little martyrs.
These child minesweepers were part of, were members of, the Basiji movement. This is the Iranian movement that President Ahmadinejad praises and whose official scarf he wears in public.
At this point, it is worth considering what Iran analyst Michael Ledeen has observed: If you want to know what they will do to us, look at what they do to their own people.
Can you imagine how charred and crispy that old s.o.b. is by now? What a blackhearted old man.
