You're given fried chicken and lament the loss of the egg.
Get over it and get on with it. Instead of bitching, whining and complaining about other people not doing things as you believe they should be done, get out there yourself and make a difference. Otherwise you're just pissing in the wind.
No, you lost the whole hen house. Terrorism is ultimately a war of ideas. The new idea of the US is that of a bunch of jack booted Nazi thugs.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
