Spanking, Iraq and the Surge

Democrat California legislator Sally Lieber is introducing legislation that would outlaw spanking in the state arguing that it is tantamount to child abuse. Her rationale is a prime example of what is wrong with the far-left Democrats - any form of physical behavior (except for abortion) that might even be remotely considered aggressive or violent is inherently wrong. Thus, it should come as no shock that many of the same knuckleheads on the left are against the so-called Surge in Iraq even though it appears that it is already making a positive impact in Iraq prior to its implementation.

Toynbee argued that great civilizations die from suicide generally as a result of its lack of will; or, rather, great civilizations eventually die because they no longer have the will to use force when necessary in order to ensure its survival. Spanking, at the most basic level, is an example of how a parent can use force to discipline a child and teach that child the difference between right and wrong. Do all children who disobey need to be spanked? No, and not all confrontations with hostile competitors on the world stage need to be resolved with force either. However, it is clear that the use of force needs to be an option if needed, and it can only be an option if the nation has the will to use it.
