Jacoby lets loose. So Jeff what should we do? Declare war on Nigeria and Saudi Arabia? This is not clarity. It is an emotional outburst. If we are going to be constructive we need to ask the question, "Why do they hate us?" Then we need to use our power, resources, and newfound moral resolve to practice what we preach. Our motives must move more to the side of what is really right and less to the side of what-puts-more-money-in my-pocket. I grant that the fundamental Islamic jihadists are an irrational scourge but have not appeared out of nowhere. There are supported by a large group of ordinary people who see them as patriots. We have done little to counter that view. It's time we did.
