According to Kathryn Jean Lopez at The Corner, Don Imus and Tom Tancredo should take a meeting. Imus, while speaking with guest Mary Matalin, suggested that bombing Mecca might make for a good strategy:
Imus this morning just suggested on his radio show that bombing Mecca (among other places) would send a message to the enemy — a true enough (it would send some message, though I'm not sure a war-ending one) but not at all advisable statement. ... Expect a CAIR press conference scheduled before noon.
We've been through this before. Almost two years ago, Tom Tancredo offered the same strategy as a response to a nuclear terrorist attack in the US. Neither Tancredo nor Imus apparently realize that reprisal attacks against civilian areas is now considered a war crime. Unless Imus can point to a war-related activity occuring near the Black Stone, such an attack would be not just illegal, but extremely inflammatory to the Saudi government and Muslims around the world -- all for a negligible military effect.
Matalin was apparently stunned by this statement. She recovered enough a moment later to ask Imus what exactly he disliked about Dick Cheney, given Imus' impulse. Apparently, the current administration just hasn't bombed the right targets.Sphere It View blog reactions
