Rubio: Radical Islam 'Evil,' 'Must Be Defeated' U.S. Senator for Florida, Marco Rubio: "This war against radical Islamic terrorism may last for the rest of our lifetimes and unfortunately, maybe even our children. There is still evil in the world, and evil must be defeated. The United States of America remains the only country on earth with the ability and the willingness to call evil for what it is, confront it, and defeat it. In the absence of American leadership there’s chaos."
