Another GOP chickenhawk praises preemptive war

Faux-Libertarian Civitas invites Scott Walker to the stage:

Walker said that the biggest safety threat is radical Islamic terrorists and that it is only a matter of time before there is another attack on American soil. The nation needs a leader who has the courage to take the fight to the enemy before it comes here, he said, receiving standing applause from the 600-plus members of the dinner crowd.

Walker had his chance to back up that big mouth. He dropped out of Marquette in time to join the battle against Saddam Hussein in Gulf War I, but that would require more than just talking. The truth of the matter is, while President Obama has engaged in more military actions abroad than many on the left would have preferred, he's done a heck of a job cleaning up after Bush's horrific mistakes. If we allow another Republican chickenhawk to take his place, we'll have sons and daughters in harm's way in ten different countries, coming back home irreparably broken or in a body bag.
