Winston Churchill on Terrorism

Well, actually, terrorism as we now know it did not exist in the 1940s. But Naziism was just as evil, and maybe even more dangerous. So comparisons can and should be made.

In a cabinet meeting, Churchill said that if Hitler were to be captured, he should be summarily executed in an electric chair. He later made it clear that if other top Nazis were captured that they should be immediatly shot.

This was the correct policy. See an article from an by an Australian politician of today.

Compare the clear, decisive, morally correct comments of Sir Winston, to what almost any politician says about how the terrorists of today should be treated.

I don't agree with every one of the positions held by Winston Churchill back then, but he is so superior, morally and intellectually, to all of today's politicians, its not even funny.
