Leveling the battlefield to aid terrorists enables evil to fight on

A New Hampshire man was sentenced Friday to 15 to 30 years in prison for beating his mentally ill wife to death with a flashlight after he came home to find she had strangled their 4-year-old son with a ribbon and tried to kill their 7-year-old daughter.
Smeltzer said he wished he had a "rewind button" to go back and change what he did, including leaving his delusional wife to do cocaine and smoke crack with his friends.
"As soon as I saw my son I knew something was very wrong," Smeltzer said, choking with emotion. "I knew he was dead and I lost all control. Enraged, I struck my wife. I did something that was not going to bring my son back."
