Either They Change Or We Change Them
Andrew Sullivan had this to say about the current terror situation:
The future is grim. Until the Arab Muslim world lets go of its refusal to embrace modernity and its rigid, honor-bound defense of the most extreme version of Islam, we will have to fight a long grueling war, in which I fear some nuclear or WMD exchange is inevitable. We will lose many many more civilians.
I omitted his obligatory Bush-bashing introduction in order to provide a clear, logical and serious comment by someone I once respected. Sullivan's quote above shows there is nothing caused or created by anything a real or mentally "created from whole cloth" American leader has done. The kid gloves approach of warfare is failing.
Step it up!
