Bush on Paris attacks: 'This is the war of our time'



Jeb Bush appeared on Hugh Hewitt's show just as news was breaking about the Paris terrorist attacks.

"This is an organized effort to destroy Western civilization and we need to lead in this regard," Bush said. "This is the war of our time and we have to be serious in engaging."

Marco Rubio: "My prayers tonight are with the people of France and all those impacted by the terrible tragedy unfolding in Paris. These brutal terror attacks against innocent civilians are a reminder of the increasing dangers facing free peoples around the world, and it is important for all Americans to stand with the people of France in this difficult time.

"As we learn more about the attacks and who is behind them, the United States should assist the French government in finding those who are accountable and bringing them to justice. We cannot let those who seek to disrupt our way of life succeed. We must increase our efforts at home and abroad to improve our defenses, destroy terrorist networks, and deprive them of the space from which to operate.”
