Republican presidential candidate and Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, has a warning for radical Islamic terrorists at home and abroad.
“We will look for you, we will find you, and we will kill you,” he said.
Rubio’s warning was reminiscent (in fact he cited it) of Liam Neeson’s famous declaration in the movie Taken, where he threatens those who had kidnapped his daughter.
The statement drew raucous applause from the crowd attending the South Carolina Freedom Summit.
Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio summed up his hawkish foreign policy in a speech at the South Carolina Freedom Summit on Saturday with a reference to the 2008 thriller Taken.
“On our strategy on global jihadists and terrorists, I refer them to the movie Taken. Have you seen the movie Taken? Liam Neeson. He had a line, and this is what our strategy should be: ‘We will look for you, we will find you, and we will kill you,’” the Florida senator said in Greenville.
The line—referring to Neeson’s character, a CIA operative threatening a human trafficker who had kidnapped his daughter—earned the top-tier candidate thunderous applause.
Do you agree with Senator Rubio – Should our policy towards terrorists be that simple, that we should hunt them down and kill them, period? Tell us your thoughts, or make suggestions on what the Commander-in-Chief should be doing to combat terrorism.
