This weekend saw the report that since 911, Islamic Terrorism has gotten worse globally. Aside from the poor reporting containing only hearsay which not much more need to be said of, if it was meant to be some sort of indictment of the GWoT I think they got it all wrong.
1. In a long war such as this war, if our actions do not anger those trying to destroy us, we are not doing enough.
2. If in being angered they reveal themselves as the Islamofascist that they are wanting to be, then even better and easier for us to kill them.
I do not understand why in waging a war so many still want us to play nice. Wars should be brutal enough to want to win rapidly lest any on either side think to drag it out longer than necessary, and enough so the peace afterward last a bit longer till the next war.
