  •  Great post Gooserock! (0+ / 0-)

    That's one of the best short summaries of the present reality that I've read.

    Terrorism is a tactic, not an "enemy".

    Religious fundamentalism is the "enemy" here. But religious fundamentalism is an idea. You can't fight ideas with bullets and bombs, unless (maybe) you are prepared to commit wholesale genocide. You can only defeat an idea with a better idea.

    Maybe that was what the poster had in mind by "information front". But our "better idea" just appears bankrupt when we kill innocent people. The "military front" works against our "better idea", and is totally counterproductive.
