Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (http://www.wnd.com/redir/r.asp?http://www.mikehuckabee.com//), a candidate for the GOP nomination for president, is warning that the war on terror will not end in a draw.
“There’s no peaceful co-existence, there’s no accommodation, there’s no naïve nonsense that if we leave them alone they leave us alone. This is a war someone will win and someone will lose,” he told WND (http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=58178) during an exclusive one-on-one interview.
“Whoever perseveres and whoever has the strongest will, will in fact win and that’s why we can’t give up,” he said.
He was responding to WND’s question about the likelihood of another terrorist attack similar to 9/11 on U.S. soil.
“There’s almost an inevitability, not just a possibility,” he said. “It will happen again. And it’ll happen because we face an enemy that is not a nation-state that can be contained within borders and boundaries, because their war is not about borders and boundaries.
“Islamofascism is rooted in a theocratic Islamic jihadism that seeks to destroy and annihilate every last one of us. It wants to establish a complete Islamic theocracy across the world and for that to happen it means our culture has to be completely snuffed out,” he said.
