Al-Qaeda in Iraq is self-defeating
From LRC military expert William Lind. Think about it: if you were in what was, for a long time, a secular country of ‘bad Muslims’ and al-Qaeda came in and started pushing you around, how would you feel? Rather like boomers and their SWPL progeny would in an unlikely Protestant-right coup (the sort of thing the Jake-ites fantasise about or threaten if they don’t get their way in hijacking Middle America’s churches), only I imagine indifferent Muslims are less obnoxious, ironically more like personally easygoing George H.W. Bush than Osama bin Laden.

An image for the mainline-Protestant wars: Act Up from 20 years ago taking Lake Wobegon Lutheran hostage.
