This past Saurday, I wrote:
I don't think pinprick bombing campaigns are going to stop ISIS. I don't think blustering words from Western leaders who've blustered for too long now are going to do anything to stop those who are beheading and sawing children in half.
I don't think a level of evil exists that exceeds what we are witnessing here and I think it must be vanquished with extreme prejudice.
Those who mutilate women and children will not be negotiated with.
The West cannot allow this to stand.
Today, I find this written by David French over at NRO:
Let’s make this simple, shall we?
1. Al-Qaeda carried out the deadliest attack on American soil in American historyand the most devastating foreign attack against an American city since the British occupied and burned Washington during the War of 1812.
5. ISIS has seized uranium in sufficient quantities to make a radiological weapon, a dirty bomb.
In other words, ISIS is more capable in every way than the terrorists that hit America so hard on 9/11. Pinprick strikes weren’t enough to stop a much weaker Osama bin Laden. They will not be enough to stop a much stronger Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Any freaking questions?
