A Great Line Plain and Simple

Mark Steyn has a great line to finish this article on the British government's successful thwarting of a massive terror scheme.

"Absent a determination to throttle the ideology, we're about to witness the unraveling of the world. "

OK, maybe it's a bit dramatic, but I think the point is valid. It's almost an excercise in futility to expect to win every tactical battle with terrorism. We must win the battle of ideas, and to do that we must offer something more substantial than a muddled strategy of appeasement.
