I want to commend the letter by Richard Torre, printed on Dec. 17.
Someone who understands that the Western world has been at war with Muslims, radical or not, since Charles Martel, grandfather of Charlemagne, drove them from the Plain of Tours. Also turned back Italy 1571, Vienna 1683 and other places and times.
This is an ideological war which never ends. It is now, ocean or not, at our doorsteps. As he says, it is common sense.
