Seriously. This is getting all too predictable.
We thwart a terrorist act, they tell us that we will be killed for the greater glory of Allah.
We help one of their leaders die for Allah, and all Americans must die.
Someone draws a cartoon mocking these “peaceful” individuals for their bloody ways, and the cartoonist must die.
People choose to reject their worldview, and they must die.
We could hold a banquet in their honor, eat the salad with the wrong fork, and that would somehow insult islam, and we would all have to die.
I know! Let’s bow to their sensibilities and not publish pictures showing what happens when someone goes all 4th Century on us and kills over 3000 civilians. I’m sure that they’ll see the error of their ways and renounce murder and mayhem as tools to achieve their goals!
Coddling doesn’t work.
Appeasement doesn’t work.
Making it extraordinarily clear that acts of aggression will be met with swift and terrible retribution will work.
Just ask Thomas Jefferson.
