    I can't feel too positive about any of this. Every time a drone or aircraft attack rips apart another innocent family, a survivor will form a lifelong hatred of America. We can catch as many Taliban leaders as we like, and a new crop of radical leaders will grow up.

    I just saw the film Baader Meinhof Complex, and those young Germans, like Islamic extremists today, knew that their bombings and murders were applauded by a large number of supporters who shared their anger at the US but lacked the particular madness required to take violent and suicidal action.
