"It is becoming clear that we can no longer tolerate the politically correct behavior and speech codes that prevent us from honestly examining and openly discussing the threat posed by militant Islam. Political correctness blinds us to the fact that the Muslim religion is being used to support a murderous ideology that seeks to impose an islamic utopia on the world. It also explains our reluctance to use all available means to confront the threat from Islam.
Simply stated, there is a pacifist strain within the West that argues for understanding, tolerance, and 'dialogue' with the terrorists. By now it should be clear that there can be no dialogue with these men."
--Melvin E. Kriesel, retired U.S. Army Colonel who commanded Special Forces, Military Intelligence and Psychological Operations units (The St. Croix Review, December 2006)
