Here's a policy for responding to ideological terrorists who make war.

"You ask, what is our policy? I can say: It is to wage war, by sea, land and air, with all our might and with all the strength that God can give us; to wage war against a monstrous tyranny, never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory, however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival." Winston Churchill, 1940

  1. Watching the run-up to WWII in Ken Burns' series on the Roosevelts -- I was struck by the similarities between the menace we face now -- and the menace Churchill and FDR and our nations faced. We seem to have lost the ability to call evil, evil.
