Micheline Calmy-Rey, the Swiss Foreign Minister, has gone on record saying that peace talks with Osama Bin Laden are the only way to effectively combat terrorism.
I have a major issue with that, and it’s not the obvious one.1 OBL is a figurehead; he doesn’t and wouldn’t speak for terrorists, not even in Qaeda. Reaching détente with him wouldn’t necessarily have any real effect on other terrorist cells, and that’s something I’d expect the Swiss Foreign Minister to actually know.
What is the answer? Good question, and though I still believe Iraq was a mistake, I’m also certain that appeasement isn’t the way to go with this creep, nor his bastard minions.
1. The way to deal with OBL is, of course, to kill him in the most ghastly, painful and drawn-out way that can be devised. But in order to do that we have to capture him. So I propose we capture his family, and slowly put each member of his family to death, until he surrenders.
Then we kill the fucker.
