It’s Better To Fight Them There Than Here?

The asinine argument that it is better to fight Al Qaida in Iraq because if we don’t they will follow us back to the United States and kill us in our beds is the height of stupidity. It is roughly the equivalent of postulating that it is better to go out into the woods and fields to find and kill every mouse that might eventually find its way into our house, eat the grass seed and cheese while spreading hanta virus in the cupboards.

Doesn’t it make sense, rather, to protect our houses’ perimeters and set some mousetraps?
