    should be arested for aiding and abetting terrorists (as in the IRA).  King has one of the louder mouths in congress, not to mention one of the least intelligent minds.  May even be related to Steve King.

    •  He should be arrested for hypocrisy more than (0+ / 0-)

      for supporting the IRA.  Terrorism is a technique, more than a philosophy. What offends me about King is that he is willing to call Muslims "terrorists" at the drop of a hat, while failing to recognize terrorism when committed by Irish Catholics.  Truth is, terrorism is a weapon of the weak - asymmetrical warfare is another term - the IRA uses it against the UK, just as insurgents use it against the US.  Rather than focusing on "terrorism" per se, it has always been more productive to focus on the ideology and agenda of those who use it, and when it comes time to end a conflict the best policy is always to split off and marginalize the worst nutcases from those who can eventually negotiate.  This goes for the IRA as much as it goes for the Taliban or Hamas.  But Peter King always shouts way more than he reasons, and his words today just confirm that fact about him.
