Friedman Day

Suck. On. This.

Deep thoughts from a man who thinks that murdering innocent civilians randomly around the Arab world - because we can - is a sound foreign policy.

And as much as this is a moral catastrophe, it's also factually incorrect. Our going over and shooting Muslims didn't stop terrorism - it inflamed it. What would have stopped terrorism was bringing the actual terrorists who caused 9/11 to justice and setting the conditions for terrorism to eat itself - improving lives in impoverished areas, allowing public opinion of those who kill innocents to falter. The world was behind us after being hit with a terrorist attack until we started acting, in their eyes, like terrorists.
