Rick Santorum said that the threat of the Islamic State should be countered with a more aggressive U.S. mission:

If ISIS wants to establish a seventh-century caliphate, let’s oblige them by bombing them back to the seventh century.

— Rick Santorum

This is the kind of person that bubbles to the top of our political spectrum. I have a number of questions for Santorum:

  1. How does one bomb a “state” that doesn’t exist on the map but rather only in the heads of its self-appointed criminal leaders?
  2. How does one bomb a state into the 7th century, if that were even possible, without killing thousands of innocent people, and then starving out the survivors, since we know that the 7th century wasn’t very good at feeding millions of people?
  3. How does a Christian like yourself rationalize that it’s ok to kill innocent civilians by the thousands in the name of ideology?
  4. When was the last time in our history when bombing a state in the Middle East actually solved a problem?
  5. And finally, Mr. Santorum, do you know anyone in the Middle East? In Iran, Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan? Do you personally know and are friends with just one single person who lives there? Because if you did, I don’t understand how you could suggest to indiscriminately bomb the Middle East, knowing you would obliterate that person, their family, their loved ones and the entire future of their offspring.

Some Christian, you are.
