In my book, I point out that there should only be one goal in the War On Terror: To end it by any means necessary. Any other objective is delusional and pointless.
"We were never at war with the Japanese people, the German or Italian people. We were at war with their extremist leadership. Unfortunately, those leaders were using their people as pawns, and they were victimized and they suffered. Muslims are facing a similar conundrum with the Jihadist extremists. It is not up to the defenders of freedom to separate the wheat from the chaff. It is our duty to end the terror, period. It is up to Muslims to separate the peaceful from the psychopaths."
Perhaps the Turkish military has decided to do just that.
The time will come when our American leaders will have to come to the same conclusion. The question is, how much carnage will it take to motivate them?
