The Therapy Sessions

Steven Den Beste:
Part of what we face is an implacable ideology, one rooted deeply in the past, one incompatible with the modern era, and one which finds our existence intolerable and wants us all dead. There are only two ways to defeat such an ideology: by convincing most of those who subscribe to it to change their minds, or by killing them.
It is ironic that the bloodthirsty Republicans are the ones who advocate a policy that will - hopefully - "change their minds:" the liberalization of Iraq.
The Democrats are embarking on a policy of ignoring them - a policy which will not work. Eventually, we will have to kill them on a large scale.
The Democrats will call their current policy "containment."
I call it genocide.
