Tommy Thompson on Foreign Policy
Former Secretary of H.H.S.; former Republican Governor (WI)
Mark Neumann: Yes
Tommy Thompson: Yes
TANCREDO: Anybody that would suggest that we should take anything like this off the table in order to deter that kind of event in the United States isn’t fit to be president. My task as president is primarily to protect and defend this country. And that means to deter any kind of aggression, especially the type we are threatened with by Al Qaida, which is nuclear attack.
THOMPSON: I sincerely believe that bombing religious artifacts and religious holy sites would do nothing but unify 1 billion Muslims against us. It makes no sense.
TANCREDO: After we take a hit?
THOMPSON: I think we’ve got to strengthen our military and we’ve got to recognize in this world right now we are fighting a holy war. It’s a jihad. And until we recognize that and stand up to be Americans and for America, we’re going to continue to lose.
