Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

The Wire And ISIS

Interesting parallel.

But as the author notes, Marlo had to die.  There are some lines you don't cross and ISIS has crossed almost all those lines.

That doesn't mean that turning ISIS into a shell of itself will make Iraq and Syria functional.

It just means the psychopaths will be replaced with sociopaths.  And the latter are at least more predictable.
