I think it is a flawed idea that we, as a nation, can't "kill our way" out of this problem with radical islamist terrorist ass-clowns, and truth is, that was official government policy on September 12th, 2001. When we were doing it, we were doing it really well.

BTW, And I am not certain if the President is aware of this, as he may have missed it while he was a state senator or while he was out organizing a community somewhere; but men, with horses and bayonets, used 21st Century technology that is powered by batteries, jet fuel and GPS made by private companies and smashed the Taliban and decimated Al-Qaeda in the mountains of Afghanistan.

Daniel Greenfield on making nice with Muslims:
Obama's greatest Foreign Policy error was the same one that had been made by Bush and by numerous past administrations. The error was that the problem was not Islam, but Islamic violence. It was Obama however who took that error to its logical conclusion by pursuing a foreign policy meant to part Islamists from their violent tendencies by allowing them to win without the need for terrorism.
