Our Strange Relationship with Terrorists Continues

Folks, here’s another must-read article by Victor Davis Hanson, an oracle of our time:

True, al-Qaeda is now scattered, the Taliban and Saddam gone. But the calculus of a quarter century – threaten, hit, pause, wait; threaten, hit, pause, wait – is now entrenched in the minds of Middle Eastern murderers. Like Hitler, bin Ladenism has an agenda: the end of the liberal West. Bin Laden’s Reich is a vast pan-Arabic, Taliban-like caliphate metering out oil to a greedy West in order to purchase the weapons of its destruction; there is, after all, an Israel to be nuked, a Europe to be out-peopled and cowered, and an America to be bombed and terrorized into isolation.
