Bruce Willis is taking his tough-talking Die Hard character JOHN McCLANE to the streets of Washington DC in a bid to end the cocaine trade.

The 51-year-old action movie star fears little is being done to stop drug trafficking, and he's seriously thinking about challenging politicians to attack the problem head-on.

The outspoken actor says, "I think what the United States, and everyone who cares about protecting the freedoms that the largest part of the free world now has, should do whatever it takes to end terrorism in the world and not just in the Middle East.

"I'm talking also about going to Colombia and doing whatever it takes to end the cocaine trade. It's killing this country. It's killing all the countries that coke goes into.

"I believe that somebody's making money on it in the United States. If they weren't making money on it, they would have stopped it. They could stop it in one day.

"It's just a plant that they grow, and these guys are growing it like it's corn or tobacco or any other thing.

"By the time it gets here (America), it becomes a billion dollar industry. And I think that's a form of terrorism as well."
