Diplomacy won’t work

I wish with my whole heart that any problem coud be fixed by diplomacy. How do you work diplomatically with men who are willing to blow up our buildings and who declare that they want us dead?

Diplomacy means those who hate us would have to be willing to come to the table and discuss their motives and feelings with us. That is not going to happen; we have to defend ourselves. I want my grandchildren to live in a peaceful world free from terrorism. I think the only way to do that is to fight and eliminate those who would kill us.
