Do YOU remember well enough?

Reality check!

Mr. Bowden subtitles his book "The First Battle in America's War With Militant Islam"--and he is certainly right in underscoring the entire saga as a formative moment for contemporary Islamic militancy. Sunni fundamentalism, as an ideology inclined to see terrorism as a legitimate activity, predated the rise of the Shiite Khomeini. But the ayatollah's triumph over the shah and over his primary foreign backer--the U.S.--globally supercharged Islamic radicalism.

I may read the book, but I really need no new reminders of stuff clearly self-evident. Those that choose to hide their heads and call what is ongoing 'a law enforcement' issue will reap the whirlwind. Sadly, they'll drag us along if we let them!

H/T 'the strange lady'.
