WRM & Co. seem to have an exaggerated idea of what we can do to prevent things like this from happening. This is a big world with six billion people in it and lots of failed states.
Of course we have limits (and do not want to spend too much tax payer money). However:
A) Air intervention is not too expensive
B) We could have saved a lot of money wasted on counterproductive intervention, like the one in Libya
C) Our intervention could be much more cost effective if we were less finicky
Bush’s strategy of using Democracy to change the backward Islamic culture, and thereby drain the swamp that is spawning a continuous supply of new terrorists, was abandoned by the weak and stupid Obama. Now the best we can hope for is that the Sunni Jihadists will focus all their resources on killing the Shiite Jihadists, and vice versa.
Muslim means “submitted to Allah”: This has nothing to do with democracy. By duty, a muslim must conquer non-muslim territories as soon he can. They have now much money, weaponry, total support of most of western media and intellectuals. Nobody in West understands that a quiet muslim and an islamic terrorist are the same person, like two faces of a dime.
We have to react to their agressions in a global way, not trying to identify, catch, juge and emprison the guilty individuals: they are already deified as martyrs by fellow believers.
