This is an excellent column re: Why we can’t negotiate with ISIS. It’s in a center-left magazine, Atlantic. The final sentence – should – launch a broad investigation of strategy and goals, because it is exactly correct:
“If ISIS remains true to its principles, that’s also the reason the world can accept nothing less than the group’s full defeat.” (Emphasis mine.)

First off – America’s goal in the region, whatever it is, has not and will not be achieved via our current or recent strategies – whatever they’ve been. We’ve been doing this for decades and nothing positive has accrued. We either need to colonize the region with all the human and economic costs of dragging its inhabitants, a generations-long quest, into the 21st Century and post-Enlightenment world, or leave it to Russia and China, both of whom […]
