When we prepare for the worst, we lessen our fears of such. We batten the hatches, so to speak, against the oncoming storm, and then commend ourselves to God. Scorpions are undesirable within any home, so one hunts them out and kills them, wherever they may be found. ISIS ventures out of Syria to kill and conquer. It is logical to suppose that one goes to the nest and cleans them out. But if this administration cannot take so logical a step in Syria, which is half a world away, what will it do should terrorists strike out at the United States from their nesting place just across the border in Mexico?
