Seeing the Forest

Michael Ledeen has a good column arguing that we must look at -- and deal with -- the Islamist attacks and wars around the globe as an integrated whole, not as individual, isolated events. In other words, our only hope for survival is to develop and implement a grand strategy to battle the fundamental enemy, Islamic totalitarianism, and that such a strategy must include taking out the Iranian and Syrian regimes. I agree whole-heartedly, though I'm not convinced that it can be done by solely political means; indeed I think the time for that has long since passed and it will now take a massive military victory to show the Islamists and their sympathizers the futility of their cause.
