Fight all of the enemies of peace

Recent letter writer J.C. Lecordier’s knowledge of history apparently does not extend past his recent memory, selective as that is.

Recent letter writer J.C. Lecordier’s knowledge of history apparently does not extend past his recent memory, selective as that is.

The Middle East has indulged in skirmishes and wars long before the West ever set foot inside its dusty borders, terrorizing neighbours and de-stabilizing regions, mostly in the name of Islam.

ISIS, Boko Haram and the Taliban are at present merely an academic threat to Lecordier. He yearns for peace in our time and greatly benefits from the sacrifice of those who paid a terrible price in order to repel expansionist Germany (among others). Funny thing about tyrants and terrorists, they rarely seem happy sticking to their own backyard.

Maybe Lecordier could just say thank you to all the people who supplied armaments and training back then and continue the fight now against all enemies of peace.
