Walker to declare radical Islamic terrorists 'pure evil,' say he's been tested like no one else in prez race

Gov. Scott Walker will tell cadets at The Citadel today they deserve a commander-in-chief who tells them the truth, declaring the country is at war with radical Islamic terrorism.

Walker has regularly slammed President Obama, saying he refuses to acknowledge the threat of radical Islamic terrorists. According to excerpts of his prepared remarks released ahead of the speech, Walker will say the war will not go away overnight and those groups will continue to grow unless the U.S. destroys them.

"Yes, the world is complex, but some things are simple: there is good and there is evil,” Walker plans to say. "America is a force for good in the world. Radical Islamic terrorists are agents of pure evil.”
Walker has also regularly criticized the nuclear deal the Obama administration reached with Iran, pledging to reject it on his first day in office if elected president.

Walker will again criticize the deal, saying Iran will expand its influence in the region and increase support to Hamas and Hezbollah. But Obama and Hillary Clinton believe “they can sit on the sidelines, hoping Iran will defeat ISIS for them.

"Over the last seven years, we have seen far too much of this delusion and wishful thinking,” Walker will say. “To believe that a stable and lasting Middle East can be built by working with Iran, any more than by working with ISIS, isn’t statesmanship. It’s pure fantasy.”

Walker, who has faced questions over his foreign policy experience, will also say “now is not the time for untested leadership” and declare he has been tested “like no other candidate in this race.”
"As president, I will send the following message: the retreat is over,” Walker will say. “American leadership is back and, together with our allies, we will not surrender another inch of ground to terrorists or any other power that threatens our safety.”
