How not to de-escalate hostility toward the US

Tom Tancredo shows you how:
Republican presidential hopeful Tom Tancredo says the best way he can think of to deter a nuclear terrorist attack on the US is to threaten to retaliate by bombing Islamic holy sites.

The Colorado congressman on Tuesday told about 30 people at a town hall meeting in the state of Iowa that he believes such a terrorist attack could be imminent and that the US needs to hurry up and think of a way to stop it.

“If it is up to me, we are going to explain that an attack on this homeland of that nature would be followed by an attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina,” Tancredo said at the Family Table restaurant.

“Because that’s the only thing I can think of that might deter somebody from doing what they otherwise might do,” Tancredo said in comments recorded and posted on the Web site iowapolitics.com.
Brilliant idea - threaten to bomb places likely to be heavily visited by civilians who basically have little interest in the neuroses of the elites governing the US empire. What is it we call folks like Tancredo? Terrorist. Oh, that's right, it's only "terrorism" if "they" do it.
