Walker Promises Pre-emptive Strikes to Prevent Attacks on US

Thursday, 21 May 2015 04:36 PM

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is doubling down on his promises of pre-emptive strikes to prevent what he says are certain future attacks on American soil.

As he prepares for a likely 2016 presidential run, Walker told a multistate Republican gathering in Oklahoma on Thursday that he's convinced "radical Islamic terrorists" are planning to attack the U.S.

He promised he'd "take the fight to them before they take the fight to us."

Walker didn't say specifically who most threatens the United States or what military actions he'd authorize in response. But he warned the fight would be lengthy, perhaps taking years.

Walker recently joined several Republicans in saying the U.S. was wrong to invade Iraq in 2003. He's fresh off of his first visit to Israel.
