No one in the West wants a generational struggle with jihadism any more than Israel wants perpetual war with Hamas in Gaza. The problem is the enemy always gets a vote. It just may be that the Middle East will become the West’s Gaza. And, so far, nobody has a good answer for what to do about it.
I (and Angelo Codevilla) do: Destroy the regimes that organize, finance, arm, train, protect, support, and use Muslim terror gangs for their own purposes.
How many mad Muslim murder-bombers is Saddam Hussein supporting these days, hm?
